Statistics New Zealand, in association with the Ministry for the Environment, is currentlypreparing physical and monetary stock and flow estimates for four of New Zealand’s significant natural resources – fishing, forestry, subsoil and water resources. Technically, the physical estimates are referred to as natural resource accounts, while the monetary estimates are referred to as environmental accounts. In New Zealand the initial impetus to begin compiling natural resource and environmental accounts came about as a result of decisions stemming from the Budget 2000. The Government decided that more information was required on complex relationships between the economy, the environment and society.
This report provides information on the physical stock of fishery resources in New Zealand (including the Exclusive Economic Zone) for the period 1996 to 2000. The report provides limited stock estimates for some commercially fished species, as well as the commercial, recreational and customary catches where data is available. It also provides information on allowable catches that are set under the Quota Management System.
