This note is not part of the order, but is intended to indicate its general effect.
This order, which comes into force on 30 July 2013, replaces the Commodity Levies (Mussel, Oyster, and Salmon) Order 2007. That order is revoked at the close of 29 July 2013.
This order imposes a levy on farmed mussels, oysters, and salmon. The levy must be paid by the fish farmer or the levy collector (both of which are defined in clause 3). The levy is payable to Aquaculture New Zealand.
Under section 12 of the Commodity Levies Act 1990, this order will be deemed to be revoked at the close of 30 June 2014 unless it is confirmed by an Act of Parliament passed on or before that date. The order will then be deemed to be revoked 6 years after it is made, by virtue of section 13(1) of the Commodity Levies Act 1990, unless the order is earlier revoked or extended.
