Future of Our Fisheries - Public Meeting - New Plymouth

  • Copthorne Hotel Grand Central 42 Powderham Street New Plymouth, Taranaki, 4310 New Zealand (map)

Ministry of Primary Industries has been developing the Future of our Fisheries programme to ensure we have sustainable, shared fisheries now and in the future. Come along and have your say. 

Public consultation meetings, hui and workshops on the proposals will be held in November and December 2016.

The meetings and hui are a chance to hear more about the proposals in the consultation documents and supporting technical documents. Importantly, they also provide an opportunity for you to put your views forward. The feedback from the meetings and hui will be captured and analysed along with formal submissions.

This programme incorporates 3 projects:
1. Fisheries Management System Review: This project considers fisheries information needs, decision-making and value-add opportunities.
2. Proposed regulatory change for the Integrated Electronic Monitoring and Reporting System (IEMRS): This project outlines proposed regulatory options to implement electronic catch reporting, vessel location information and cameras on all of New Zealand's commercial fishing fleet.
3. Proposed regulatory change for Enabling Innovative Trawl Technology (EITT): This project outlines proposed regulatory change options to implement trawling innovations that can improve fish stock sustainability, improve environmental performance and improve economic benefits.
