Statistics New Zealand is working with a number of government and other agencies to produce a range of environment statistics about the natural environment and the impact of economic and social activities on the environment. As a part of this work, Statistics New Zealand has developed environmental accounts for several natural resources: energy, fisheries, forestry, minerals, and freshwater. Environmental accounts consist of physical and monetary stock and flow accounts.
The physical stock and flow accounts are referred to as natural resource accounts. They measure the physical stocks and flows of natural resources in units such as tonnes and joules. These quantities are valued, resulting in monetary figures that form environmental accounts and can be linked to economic statistics such as the gross domestic product (GDP). The fish monetary stock account presents a time series asset value of New Zealand’s commercial fish resource, based on quota values. Asset values in this report are derived from the quota and annual catch entitlement (ACE) values of the commercial fish resource as managed under the QMS.
