3 Principal rules

These rules amend the Fisheries (Cost Recovery) Rules 2001 (the principal rules).

Explanatory note

This note is not part of the rules, but is intended to indicate their general effect.

These rules, which come into force on 1 July 2016, amend the Fisheries (Cost Recovery) Rules 2001. The change ensures that the levy imposed under these rules also recovers costs for the new activities to be carried out by observers under the observer programme. Those additional activities were added to the observer programme by the Fisheries (Foreign Charter Vessels and Other Matters) Amendment Act 2014.

Issued under the authority of the Legislation Act 2012.

Date of notification in Gazette: 16 June 2016.

These rules are administered by the Ministry for Primary Industries.
