Ministry of Fisheries' Species Codes
This section will take you to tables containing the Ministry of Fisheries approved species codes.
When using the codes in the table, please note that an additional code of UNX is available but should only be used to record an unidentified species.
Where no appropriate Ministry of Fisheries approved species code is present, you must:
- Record the species as "UNX"; and
- Establish the correct scientific name for the species; and
- Report this scientific name to
Research Data Manager
Ministry of Fisheries
P O Box 1020
so that a new species code can be created.
