Dated at Wellington this 20th day of October 2009.
Hon Phil Heatley,
Minister of Fisheries.
This note is not part of the notice, but is intended to indicate its general effect.
This notice, (except clause 8) , comes into force on the day after the date of its notification in the Gazette.
Clauses 4 to 6 relate to the introduction, on and from 1 October 2010, of new stocks from the bladder kelp species in the attached stage of their life history in quota management areas 3 and 4 into the quota management system established under Part 4 of the Fisheries Act 1996 (the principal Act).
Clause 7 notifies the determination by the Minister of Fisheries not to make stocks from the bladder kelp species in the free-floating and beach cast stages of their life history in quota management areas 3 and 4 subject to the quota management system on and from 1 October 2010. The effect of the notification is that the moratorium on the issue of fishing permits set out in section 93 of the principal Act ceases to apply to bladder kelp stocks in those stages of their life history.
Clause 8 consequentially amends Schedule 4C of the principal Act on and from 1 October 2010, as required by sections 17B(5) and 19(2A) of that Act, so that bladder kelp in quota management areas 3 and 4 is no longer subject to the fishing permit moratorium.
Date of notification in Gazette: 29 October 2009.
This notice is administered by the Ministry of Fisheries.
