The New Zealand Fisheries Management Research Database

Welcome to the New Zealand Fisheries Management Research Database. The database was created by the University of Auckland Library in conjunction with the Ministry of Fisheries. It is intended for use by all organisations involved within the fishing sector and other researchers for the purposes of reference, research and analysis.

The database links key sources of New Zealand fisheries management information into one resource that researchers and analysts can use as an organised access point to begin their research.


The database contains primarily New Zealand material covering social, economic, environmental, recreational and customary rights information. The inclusion of relevant international sources enhances the depth of content in the resource to assist in promoting fisheries management and policy development.

Note that biological or scientific data are not included in the scope of the database.

Sources listed include a range of different formats such as websites, books, reports, working papers, theses, newspaper and journal articles. There are references to video recordings and other materials also.

For further information on the scope, limitations and currency of the contents, please see the Editorial Policy on the Database Details page.


This database is freely available to the general public. You do not need to be a University of Auckland staff member or student in order to search the database.

Most of the content of the database is held in the public domain and is freely available through the Internet or held in national, public or university library collections in New Zealand. Where materials are only in print, or access is restricted in some way, this is noted on the record for the item.

To locate print or other items for use, members of the public should contact their own library for assistance. Copyright restrictions will apply.

For further information on obtaining access to documents, please see Obtaining Access to Items in the Database on the Help page.
