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 regulation 3 of the Fisheries (Kaimoana Customary Fishing) Regulations 1998. Subclause (2) of that regulation confines the scope of the 1998 Regulations to fisheries managed under fisheries legislation. However, freshwater fisheries are excluded altogether. The amendment removes the exclusion for freshwater fisheries so the 1998 Regulations will apply to all fisheries managed under fisheries legislation.
Date of notification in Gazette: 23 October 2008.
These regulations are administered by the Ministry of Fisheries.
