The Government has set a goal to plant one billion trees
over 10 years. MPI has a key role in helping to meet this
goal. Our initial estimates suggest about 500 million
trees will be delivered through current planting rates.
MPI’s aim is to increase the rate of planting to meet the
All cows transported to slaughter should have a comfortable and safe journey, arriving in a fit and healthy state. It’s the responsibility of farmers to make sure cows are adequately prepared for transport, able to withstand the stress of travel, and are handled in a manner that minimises stress and injury. Lactating cows, including those in late lactation, have an increased risk of going down if not adequately prepared and managed.
This booklet provides information and guidelines for those with low immunity about: identifying high risk foods to avoid; selecting safer foods; food safety rules for common foodborne illnesses; and what to do when storing and preparing food.

FAR 2018/05 – Stock assessment of tarakihi off the east coast of mainland New Zealand
The stock structure of tarakihi in New Zealand coastal waters is reviewed. The review supports the hypothesis that tarakihi off the east coasts of the South and North Islands (including TAR 3, TAR 2 and eastern TAR 1) belong to a single, inter-connected stock. A stock assessment was conducted for the eastern stock of tarakihi, including the estimation of current stock status and yields.
FAR 2018/04 – Fisheries characterisation and catch-per-unit-effort analyses FLA 2
The fisheries taking flatfish in FLA 2 were analysed from 1989¬-90 to 2015-16 using commercial catch and effort data. The FLA 2 fishery is largely concentrated around the port of Napier. Sand flounder and New Zealand sole are the dominant flatfish species caught. The accepted CPUE index using daily aggregated data for combined flatfish species shows cyclic fluctuations in abundance, with indices for New Zealand sole and sand flounder showing similar trends to the aggregate series.
