14H Determining area-based maximum levels of fishing-related mortality
  • (1) Area-based limits set under section 14F(1)(g) shall be set only—

    • (a) for populations of threatened species that are geographically or genetically discrete; and

    • (b) for areas corresponding to areas having effect under the Fisheries Act 1996 as fisheries management areas or quota management areas.

    (2) In setting any area-based limit for a threatened species under section 14F(1)(g), the Minister shall determine a level of fishing-related mortality for a discrete population referred to in subsection (1) which should neither cause a net reduction in the size of the population nor seriously threaten the reproductive capacity of that population.
