Arrow squid have a short lifespan and rapid growth. They generally live for one year, spawn once and then die.
Arrow squid is managed by Fisheries New Zealand (FNZ) using the Quota Management System (QMS). FNZ works in partnership with Deepwater Group (a not for profit organisation that works on behalf of fisheries quota owners) to manage and monitor the fishery. The risk assessment covers nearly 100% of all squid caught in New Zealand.
