fisheries stock assessment processes review
Results of a review into the Ministry’s advice around fish stock sustainability.
The Ministry’s (then) Acting Chief Executive Stan Crothers called for the review after he found that poor advice was given to the Minister of Fisheries in 2007 over the state of New Zealand’s Chatham Rise orange roughy fishery.
The review contains twelve recommendations on roles and process that need to be addressed by the Ministry.
