Council Supports Long Term Sustainability

NZ Seafood Industry Council Supports Long Term Sustainability

24 March 2006

The New Zealand Seafood Industry is very pleased with the Minister of Fisheries’ announcement on increasing rock lobster total allowable catch (TAC) for Otago and Southland yesterday, said New Zealand Seafood Industry Council Chief Executive Owen Symmans.

“This is proof that sensible management of fisheries works,” Mr Symmans said. “The rock lobster fisheries in these areas have endured economically difficult cuts to the TAC in the past in favour of rebuilding the fishery. It’s very positive to see those choices paying off now.”

It is disappointing that the Minister has reduced the Total Allowable Commercial Catch (TACC) for Southern Blue Whiting. This is an important fishery for some companies and the reduction will have significant economic impacts for those involved, Mr Symmans said.
