This note is not part of the order, but is intended to indicate its general effect.
This order, which comes into force on 1 October 2011, amends Schedule 5A of the Fisheries Act 1996 (the Act), which lists stock for which no additional annual catch entitlement may be allocated where underfishing occurs. The amendments omit all paua stocks from Schedule 5A. This has the effect of allowing a person who holds an annual catch entitlement (ACE) for paua to carry over up to 10% of the person's uncaught ACE in the first fishing year into the second fishing year, as provided for in section 67A(2) of the Act.
Date of notification in Gazette: 25 August 2011.
This order is administered by the Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry.
