The lines of commercial fishermen fishing for potential quota increases have been reinforced by a scientific report on the state of New Zealand fish stocks.
A Ministry for Primary Industries report last week summarized, in three volumes and more than 1300 pages, scientific research on the status of 82 of New Zealand’s commercial fish species.
The 2013 Fisheries Plenary Report provided analysis of where there was scope for additional quotas, as well as where fishing needed to be reeled in.
