This Supplementary Order Paper amends clause 10 of the Bill to remove 3 of the 4 exemptions from mandatory reflagging of foreign charter vessels that were recommended by the Primary Production Committee. The sole remaining exemption will be for fisheries-related research approved by the chief executive under a special permit.
The exemptions removed by this Supplementary Order Paper are—
fishing that targets a tuna species named in Schedule 4B of the principal Act:
operators who, at 30 April 2012, held annual catch entitlement derived from settlement quota that represented a significant proportion of the operator's annual catch entitlement:
exceptional circumstances specified by an Order in Council.
This Supplementary Order Paper also corrects a grammatical error in clause 5, new section 106B and makes a consequential amendment necessary to give effect to the amendments to clause 10.
