We now have a new sub forum for the Briny Bar titled Fisheries Management. Post any of your concerns on the state of the fisheries or commercial wastage etc in there.

It is an important topic and it does deserve its own forum.

Fisher stalwart ready to fight ban,

http://www.stuff.co.nz/business/industries/10484078/Fisher-stalwart-ready-to-fight-ban



i would have thought when the Goverment decided to make these REC only reserves they could make provisions for guys that target Flounder/Mullet,

they could allocate area's for which they have a history for targeting these fish, i do fell for these Folk as they cant just go some place to catch them plus they must be doing it right if there are still adequate fish for them to catch...

Blitz on fishing ships off South Island coast

http://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/news/article.cfm?c_id=1&objectid=11326570



Two commercial fishing ships have been sent back to port for breaching regulations after inspectors boarded 16 vessels off the South Island coast.

The NZ Defense Force provided a ship and a plane -- the HMNZS Wellington and an RNZAF Orion -- to enable MNZ to target vessels while they were operating at sea.

What's the Catch? Challenges and Opportunities of the U.S. Fishing Industry



The economic importance of the fishing sector extends well beyond the coastal communities for which it is a vital industry. Commercial fishing operations, including seafood wholesalers, processors, and retailers, all contribute billions of dollars annually to the U.S. economy. Recreational fishing—employing both fishing guides and manufacturers of fishing equipment—is a major industry in the Gulf Coast and South Atlantic. Estimates suggest that the economic contribution of the U.S. Rec fishing industry is nearly $90 billion annually, and supports over one and a half million jobs.

Pollution and falling fish stocks damage Gulf



http://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/news/article.cfm?c_id=1&objectid=11332282

Councillors speak out about sad state of city’s marine playground


As $100 million of shiny new craft go on display at Auckland's On the Water Boat Show, the Hauraki Gulf has received a damning report about its health.

Depleted fish stocks, new marine pests and pollution by toxic chemicals from the land are highlighted in an updated State of the Hauraki Gulf Report.

The findings show a continuing and steady decline on its 2011 state and Hauraki Gulf Forum chairman John Tregidga has called a press conference for Monday to appeal for action "to stop the degradation".

Two of Auckland Council's representatives on the multi-agency forum, Christine Fletcher and Mike Lee, yesterday broke ranks to express their frustration at lack of progress.

Halfway down the page something interesting that LegaSea might like to take note of....

NZ Marine Industries chief executive Peter Busfield

"From my observations, I've heard nothing from boating people about problems in the Gulf and I saw dolphins and whales coming up under the Harbour Bridge last week and the fishing is good."

Allegations dismay fish firm boss

"This is the beginning of the end. We have still got a lot of work.

"The law of natural justice allows potential offenders to explain to us why these discrepancies may have occurred."

Mr D'Esposito said he had not yet been interviewed.


He has past fishery convictions, including making false statements in quota reports and the illegal possession of fish with brother Hawke's Bay Seafoods director Joe.

In 1994, the Wellington District Court imposed a fine of $989,395 on them and related companies, with $10million worth of boats and vehicles forfeited.

My post will probably get sensured but I'll be first to reply to your comment here Lethal,
Good idea from smudge to have a forum page dedicated to the subject fo fisheries management.

Lethal as long as your posts and posts from others base your agruements/discussions on fact and not hot air emotional rehtoric then any replys should be of the same nature.
We all seem to agree to certain aspects of the state of New Zealands fishery and its management good or bad but to continually attack the governemnt, MPI, commercial fishes in the way previous posts have will only serve to shut any positive discussion down where by some will then start putting in the jibe remarks, recreational fishes/customary ar'nt exact squeaky clean either.

At the recent NZSFC AGM held here in Gisborne one of the things discussed/mentioned especially in regard to Legasea was that in order to come across with any creditibility with government, MPI and other organisations is that we need to change our way of approach. Bite Time (Richard) if he sees this might better explain this than me.

Hey Smudge, think you may need to move this/your advisory thread into the fisheries management forum :-)
It is only my overwhelming natural humility that mars my perfection.
