This note is not part of the notice, but is intended to indicate its general effect.
This notice, which comes into force on 30 September 2006, amends the Fisheries (Quota Management Areas, Total Allowable Catches, and Catch Histories) Notice 1986.
The amendment varies the total allowable commercial catch for orange roughy in quota management areas 1, 8, and 9 (Auckland (East), Auckland (West), and Central (Egmont) combined) by reducing it from 1 400 to 800 greenweight tonnes. Under section 20(4) of the Fisheries Act 1996, the variation has effect on and from 1 October 2006.
Under section 2(4) of the Fisheries Amendment Act 1990, references in the principal notice to the
“total allowable catch” of a species are read as references to the
“total allowable commercial catch” of the species.
