Explanatory note

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

These regulations, which come into force on the 28th day after the date of their notification in the Gazette, amend the Fisheries (Challenger Area Commercial Fishing) Regulations 1986.

The definition of green-lipped mussel spat is revoked because a new definition has been included in amendments to the Fisheries (Reporting) Regulations 2001.

Regulation 14C is also revoked. That regulation made it an offence to take kina for the purposes of sale by any other method than hand gathering unless that method was specifically authorised by a fishing permit. The regulation setting out the penalties for offences is also consequentially amended. The reason for these amendments is that kina is now managed within the quota management system.


Issued under the authority of the Acts and Regulations Publication Act 1989.

Date of notification in Gazette: 23 September 2004.
