This note is not part of the rules, but is intended to indicate their general effect.
These rules, which come into force on 1 April 2008, amend the Fisheries (Cost Recovery) Rules 2001—
to clarify that the recovery of costs for conservation services (as opposed to fisheries services) for benthic research in the exclusive economic zone are not affected by the 2007 Benthic Protection Areas accord; and
to ensure that the amount to be recovered will not exceed $0.333 million in any 1 year.
Date of notification in Gazette: 28 February 2008.
These rules are administered by the Ministry of Fisheries.
