In this publication we present the key findings from the report "Future capability needs for the primary industries in New Zealand" prepared for MPI by Infometrics and Nimmo-Bell Company Ltd. This "People Powered" report summarises the expected capability needs for each of the primary industries, along with the services such as marketing and scientific research, that support the primary industries.
Fisheries New Zealand Technical Paper No: 2018/07
Prepared by the Deepwater Team, Fisheries Management, Fisheries New Zealand
To assist with future regional forest industry planning, MAF compiled wood availability forecasts for 13 regions covering the period 2008 to 2040. These forecasts were produced in association with the major forest growers and consultants. This report summarises the results of the 13 regional forecasts to provide national forecasts.
Descriptive analyses of commercial catch and effort data, and standardised CPUE indices, are updated to the 2012–13 fishing year. Length samples from commercial catches, and biomass indices and length samples from research trawl surveys, are described. There were no substantive recent changes in the fishery. CPUE indices suggested biomass in the east and west coast regions were doing well, with flat or increasing trends in CPUE. However, CPUE for the southern region was gradually declining.
The New Zealand Integrated Assessment Modelling System (NZIAMS) was developed between July 2010 and June 2013 by researchers at Landcare Research, AgResearch, New Zealand Agricultural Greenhouse Gas Research Centre, and Lincoln University. The project was led by Dr James Lennox, formerly of Landcare Research, who is currently a researcher at Fondazione Eni Enrico Mattei (FEEM) in Venice, Italy. Its development was funded by the Ministry for Primary Industries.
This fact sheet outlines the biosecurity threat that myrtle rust poses to New Zealand plants.
It has been found in the Kermadec group north of New Zealand, and also in Northland, Waikato and Taranaki and on Raoul Island. It’s thought it has blown here from Australia where it is widespread.
List of Sellers of Restricted Veterinary Medicines with an MPI approved Operating Plan - Updated 23 August 2018
We used Observer data to assess the species composition of the New Zealand tuna longline fisheries, and to estimate CPUE and the number of fish caught by observed vessels during 2010–11 to 2014−15 fishing years. Data were summarised by fishing fleet and area. Reported catches were presented. Discard practices and life status were summarised for the main non-target species. The size distribution, and sex and maturity composition of blue, porbeagle, and mako sharks and Ray’s bream were determined.
The primary industries are changing. To meet the challenges and opportunities of today – and tomorrow – we will need to attract people from diverse backgrounds, who bring different capabilities to the sector.
Recently, MPI took a closer look at how the primary industries workforce is changing in terms of numbers, qualifications and diversity. MPI also looked at new entrants to the industry, who are they, where they came from, and how long they stayed in the industry. In this fact sheet we share some of the key findings from this analysis.
News for sawmillers from Forestry and Land Operations. This issue includes an update on current milling levels of indigenous forestry and a case study on Woodside Forest, Oxford - a black beech forest registered under an SFM Plan.
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 Government’s goal.

The purpose of this Risk Profile is to critically review available information and determine if the risk to human health from V. parahaemolyticus had changed since 2003.

Keywords: animal welfare; dairy calf; bobby calf
This research identifies reasons for mortality and morbidity in dairy calves for slaughter (bobby calves), and potential new welfare indicators. Results are based on observations of calves, information from questionnaires given to farmers, transport operators and slaughter plant personnel. The research links calf mortality to on-farm management practices, transport, time in calving season, and slaughter schedule. The results will be used for initiatives to further improve calf welfare.
