Review of Sustainability Measures and Other Management Controls for the 2004-05 Fishing Year
Each year the Ministry of Fisheries (MFish) undertakes a process to review the management measures for some of New Zealand’s fisheries. The Initial Position Paper (IPP) provides you with MFish’s initial position on the sustainability measures and other management controls for the 2004-05 ‘post-April’ sustainability round process which includes the following issues:
i) Adaptive Management Programme Reviews – bluenose, elephant fish, John dory, pale ghost shark, red gurnard, school shark and tarakihi;
ii) Conversion Factor Review – shark fin
The purpose of this letter is to invite you to participate in this review process.
