TMK team members completed a survey of Te Whaka a te Wera Mātaitai on Rakiura (Stewart Island) in June 2013, off the University of Otago boat “Beryl Brewin.” This research was funded by the Ministry for Primary Industries and provided key information on the status of the scallop fishery in the Mātaitai that is currently closed. The surveyors (7 divers and 2 support staff) covered over 15,000 square metres on the seabed, searching for scallops. Results will be reported to the Te Whaka a te Wera Mataitai Committee at the end of the year.
