So according to the CEO of the comm group Fisheries Inshore NZ in this article it is going to cost the best part of $200k per boat to put cameras on them?????......

My thoughts exactly
 Cost to put 4 cameras around our home 10 yrs ago, including hard drives,  high end software was about $1200.. not including a day lifting roof panels to hard wire power cables etc.

 These days battery technology and solar panels, wireless far more reliable and cheaper...and so is the hardware and cameras... and save on installing/ routing wires..

 Cameras suitable for conditions with HD resolutions.. at a guess be about $2500 each... FULL RETAIL including battery and panels and brackets..
 Hardware to record  1 K tops...

  With basic bulk buying for a fleet.. or several fleets costs then drop dramaticly further...

 Now what Really gets up my nose is the reporter.. the media... that is a high number 200K.. way higher than what the ave person would think
 " hang on a minute, thats high, maybe a further story here..."
 But nope media cant think well enough to actually follow up something that looks a little fishy...
 Just to sit at their desk, bit googling , pricing, few emails presto...
 Bottom line.. and hate to say this..." fake news"

 No different to the report who made a big issue of some homeless people who couldn't get a house... little bit background thru the tenancy records showed numerous evictions, including housing corp, for smashed walls, windows, not paying rent.....
  "Fake news"

While the camera issue is firmly in the media,what about the new nets we once heard about. Havent heard about the new nets for a while.
Are they now in full use with the majority using them.?

cirrus  The PSH cod ends are being used on some boats under special permit.  There needs to be changes to the fishing regulations around mesh sizes etc to allow them for general use. The question raised is the new system better for the fish than the existing nets.  The industry have run trials and found that there are more under size fish landed in the PSH nets, but in the inshore fishery they are mostly alive so can be released in reasonable condition. 

As discussed on these pages at times there may be an issue with catching fish at depth and the effects of barotrauma. Release mortality varies by species. NIWA was contracted to do some independent work but I have not seen a final report.  Any regulation change would have to include public consultation.  Hopefully the new Ministry will work through their backlog after they are established in 1 April.

Thanks John. Interesting. So they are not the nets they thought they would be. Thought someone must be still using the old nets as i saw last week a whole bin of very small gurnard.for sale at 
$4.95.Picked several up and they easily fitted into the palm of my hand. All the gurnard were this size..

We had someone post on our FB page a while back saying that the system had some issues, one being when they were sorting the fish on the back of the boat in the shallow water containment area, it had a destabilising effect on the boat making it dangerous in some conditions and unsuitable on some sized vessels. The fish had to be sorted in the containment area to try and ensure a decent chance at survival upon release. It certainly doesn't seem to enjoy widespread use across industry. Hopefully they will be able to develop it further so it becomes effective and economical for all trawlers to use.

LSCB,a few of us said that from the start,lifting a water laden net onboard in a sea way would cause stability issues,why not just change the cod end so all snapper under 30cm can be released,equal size!
QMS is not WORKING

Yeah looks like you were right.Will be interesting to see a final report on overall mortality. This stuff has just got to change.

Minister Nash has released his decision on Rock Lobster management changes for 1 April
 
NZSFC and Legasea media release here
 

LegaSea and the New Zealand Sport Fishing Council welcome the decision by the Minister of Fisheries Stuart Nash to reduce the allowable catch for crayfish in the Hauraki Gulf and Bay of Plenty, known as the CRA 2 region.

The Minister has set the new limits for commercial fishing at 80 tonnes per year, set aside a recreational allowance of 34 tonnes and an allowance for Maori customary fishing at 16.5 tonnes.

Spokesman Richard Baker cautiously welcomes the decision, which comes after stark evidence of the collapse of the fishery. The 2017 stock assessment puts the stock at an historic low, with only 5% of male and 18% of the female population in the water now compared to the estimated size of the unfished crayfish population, “and that should be ringing alarm bells in Wellington.”

Our Tarakihi campaign is in full swing - a stock assessment revealed we're down to about 17% of the original unfitted biomass off the east coast (of both islands). Nash will have to make a decision on how to go about rebuilding the fishery - if he has enough of the public behind him, he is more likely to make a conservative decision and cut TACC by 60% or more.  If you want to sign the petition, go to:
