A bottom trawl survey of the east coast South Island (ECSI) in 10–400 m depths was carried out using R.V. Kaharoa (KAH1803) in April–June 2018. The core (30–400 m) survey was the twelfth in the winter ECSI inshore time series (1991–94, 1996, 2007–2009, 2012, 2014, 2016, and 2018). Four strata in 10–30 m (shallow strata), previously surveyed in 2007, 2012, 2014 and 2016, were surveyed again in 2018 to monitor elephantfish and red gurnard over their full depth range.
