[ subscriber ],
you to everyone who made a contribution to the submissions
on the Ministry of Fisheries proposals for kahawai, snapper,
kingfish, flounder and mullet.
considered responses to MFish's proposals and the proportional
allocation document were incorporated into the option4 and
other non-commercial submissions, where possible.
decisions for the management of these precious, inshore shared
fisheries are referred to later in this Update.
The Kahawai Legal
Challenge is clearly our best chance to settle outstanding allocation
issues. All we aspire to is a fair deal for all non-commercial fishers.
You will also find more
information on the developments with the Hokianga Accord and the
rapidly evolving relationships with tangata whenua to strengthen
our collective position to see “more fish in the water”. Read on
hope for recreational fishers to get a fair deal
Reductions in kahawai
and west coast snapper allowances are proof we need issues
raised in the Kahawai Legal Challenge to be resolved.
No changes to flounder
or mullet management. Does this mean all is well for these
key fisheries? No foreseeable rapid rebuild of kahawai and
snapper but kingfish have a chance.

into the QMS. The joint submission from CORANZ, option4 and
