An analysis of the catches of teleost fish by visitors to Terrace Bay is presented. The analysis is based on both a card census and a check of the total number of fish caught at Terrace Bay. Both daily catch rates (8,7 fish/day) and total catches (48 308) were high. Significant differences were apparent in the species of fish sought by local and visiting anglers, which in turn resulted in differential catch rates for the two categories of anglers.
