Paua

 

In May 2011 the Ministry of Fisheries (MFish) initiated consultation on a proposal to remove Paua stocks from Schedule 5A of the Fisheries Act 1996.

Removing Paua from Schedule 5A would allow commercial fishers to carry forward up to 10 percent of Annual Catch Entitlement, if uncaught, into the next fishing year.

Submissions are due by 10 June 2011.

The proposal originates from the Paua Industry Council, the organisation established to support the five regional commercial stakeholder groups.

The MFish Initial Position Paper (IPP) is poorly written, bereft of many details and fails to establish a business case for removing Paua from Schedule 5A of the Fisheries Act 1996.

The New Zealand Sport Fishing Council (NZSFC) and option4 will be working together to develop a joint response to the proposal.

 

Having abundant Paua available provides for the social, economic and cultural wellbeing of all New Zealanders.

 
The NZSFC and option4 encourage non-commercial environmental and fishing interests, both customary and recreational, to review the following documents and respond before the 10 June 2011 submission deadline.
