South Island salmon harvest survey to start
South Island salmon anglers are being asked for their help in the first east coast wide salmon harvest survey. The Nelson/Marlborough, North Canterbury, Central South Island and Otago Fish and Game Councils are asking anglers to actively participate in the annual sea-run salmon harvest survey that is about to be undertaken. The survey comes at a critical time when sea run salmon populations are at depressed levels and the Covid-19 alert level restrictions may compromise the ability of Fish & Game to undertake annual population monitoring in the field, like helicopter-assisted spawning surveys. The survey covers all sea-run salmon rivers of the South Island east coast, spanning the area from the Wairau River in the Nelson/Marlborough Region to the Clutha River in Otago. Sports fishing licence holders will be contacted directly via the email or phone contact details they provided at the time of purchase. The sea-run salmon survey identifies the number of anglers that target sea-run salmon each season and the number of salmon they harvested. The total annual harvest is estimated by applying that information to all licenced anglers so it is important that as many anglers as possible participate in the survey.
