Explanatory note

This note is not part of the notice, but is intended to indicate its general effect.

This notice amends the Fisheries (Total Allowable Catch, Total Allowable Commercial Catch, and Deemed Value Rates) Notice 2015. The amendments commence on 30 September 2018 but apply on and from the first day of the fishing year starting on 1 October 2018.

The amendments set or vary 1 or more of the following things for quota management stocks with certain fishstock codes:

  • the total allowable catch (TAC):

  • the total allowable commercial catch (TACC):

  • the interim deemed value rate (interim DVR):

  • the basic annual deemed value rate (basic annual DVR):

  • the different rates that apply to each level by which a commercial fisher’s reported catch exceeds the fisher’s ACE (differential DVR).

The things set or varied by this notice are set out below. Anything not mentioned below is unchanged. Where an original value is cited because it is being varied, that value is taken from the principal notice and ignores various means by which the value may have been varied without amendment to a notice (for example, by allocation of quota for bait under former section 362 of the Fisheries Act 1996).
