The Integrated Electronic Monitoring and Reporting System regulations require information on oyster catch, bycatch, and oyster discards from the Foveaux Strait oyster fishery (OYU 5) to be reported daily, at a spatial scale of 1 nm based on fishers’ logbook grid cells. Fishery independent bycatch sampling was undertaken after the February 2020 oyster and Bonamia exitiosa survey. This report describes the data on oyster discards and quantification of bycatch to fulfil the reporting requirements.
