Explanatory note

This note is not part of the rules, but is intended to indicate their general effect.

These rules, which come into force on 1 October 2004, amend the Schedule of the Fisheries (Cost Recovery) Rules 2001 in relation to the percentage of costs to be borne by industry for research relating to protected species populations where the risk to those populations by human intervention has been estimated. The original item referred to the risk posed by commercial fishing in the exclusive economic zone; this has been changed to refer to New Zealand fisheries waters generally.
