Add a comment

The Ministry for Primary Industries (MPI) has begun public consultation on new catch limits for rock lobster and scallop stocks, and changes to commercial overfishing penalties for sea cucumber for 1 April 2014.

MPI is also consulting on proposals to introduce carpet shark, seal shark and hagfish to the Quota Management System from 1 October 2014.

MPI invites feedback from stakeholders and tangata whenua on the proposals. Copies of the consultation documents and information on the process for consultation, including deadlines for submissions, can be found on MPI's website at: http://www.fish.govt.nz/en-nz/Consultations/default.htm
