And this is why I am so against customary permits.
There are no real controls.
They are open to abuse and regularly are.
If the idiots had not posted for a big raffle on Face-ache, they would probably still be going.
To top it off, home detention yet again. Angry
When it comes to saving the fisheries it should be all in or all out.
No exceptions.

It is not the abuse of the Customary Permit system that concerned me, it was the fact that Fisheries NZ monitored and allowed them to carry on plundering crayfish stocks for 8 months before they acted. Something fundamentally wrong with our enforcement and judicial system that we need to collect that much evidence before they can act, or is it just incompetence on the part of Fisheries NZ.

To be fair to the people investigating this we don't know the circumstances, or what they were doing.  It may well be that it went on for so long because they wanted to catch everyone involved, not just pounce on a couple of poachers who might then have got a small fine for one-off offending.  But the long investigation seems to have netted a large number of people involved in this enterprise, which is a good thing.  No mention of recovering the money they made under the proceeds of crime act, I'd definitely like to see that happen -maybe it will, they have to be found guilty of the crime first I suppose.  It does seem a painfully long time, but getting enough evidence to convict that number of people can't be easy.
