Eco details: 
  • Unlike other long lived fish species, New Zealand tai snapper reaches sexual maturity quickly and therefore is more resilient to fishing pressure.
  • Populations of New Zealand tai snapper have been overfished in the past, but prudent fisheries management has made it so most Snapper populations in New Zealand are stable or recovering.
  • New Zealand tai snapper is caught using a variety of fishing gear, including gillnets, beach seines, bottom longlines, bottom trawls and Danish seines. Bottom trawls and Danish seines may have serious impacts on the ocean floor, while the other methods are more sustainable alternatives.
