New fishing vessel boosts jobs in Nelson and West Coast

A $6 million longline fishing vessel will be built in Nelson and is set to create new jobs for the West Coast fishing industry. The 26-metre vessel F/V Te Runanga will provide up to 25 new jobs on the West Coast, and more during its construction Nelson.,, With a crew of up to eight, it will in effect create around 25 full time jobs collectively with the additional fish it brought to the factory. It will also be built strong enough to go into the Southern Ocean around the Bounties. “Some might think it’ll be too small to venture there but this boat’s built like a tank,” Boote said. >click to read< 19:02
