Leaked document reveals Govt’s proposals to reform New Zealand fishing industry

Proposals to vastly increase marine protections in the ailing Hauraki Gulf and ban trawling in all but “carefully selected” corridors have been revealed in a leaked document. The document also outlines Oceans and Fisheries Minister David Parker’s proposals to reform the New Zealand commercial fishing industry, including progress on the rollout of cameras on commercial vessels. The document, produced for the Labour Party’s Infrastructure and Environment Committee, outlines a suite of papers to be taken to Cabinet that will “underpin the Government’s work on Oceans and Fisheries”. It was reportedly leaked to the Act Party and published online. >click to read13:15
