The taxonomic status and naming of species, the adoption of species into the Quota Management System (QMS), and the modification of species and reporting codes are ongoing processes that will continue to change after publication. This field guide is therefore not the sole definitive source for compliance or taxonomic purposes, and the guide does not affect the species names and codes provided in legislation. For further guidance on the identification of fish species or any other information contained in this guide, or if you find any information you believe may be inaccurate, please contact Ministry of Fisheries Chief Scientist, pamela.mace@fish.govt.nz. PURPOSE OF THE GUIDE This guide to identification of fishes commonly caught by surface fishing methods (surface longline, trolling, purse seine, lampara net) in New Zealand waters is intended for field use by non-specialists − fishers, fisheries observers, and others. Two separate guides deal with fishes commonly, and also those less commonly caught by bottom and midwater fishing. Technical terms are kept to a minimum, and identification features are mostly those that can be readily observed on freshly caught specimens without dissection or microscopic
