Have your say
Fisheries New Zealand is seeking feedback on a number of proposed changes to circulars that relate to digital monitoring.
What’s being proposed?
The proposed changes address practical implementation matters that have been identified by Fisheries New Zealand and the fishing sector, and improve the clarity and workability of new electronic catch and position reporting requirements.
The proposed changes are outlined in detail in the consultation document.
Making your submission
Send us your feedback by 5pm on 13 October 2019.
While we prefer email, you can post written submissions to:
Fisheries New Zealand
PO Box 2526
What to include
Make sure you tell us in your submission:
- the title of the consultation document
- your name and title
- your organisation’s name (if you are submitting on behalf of an organisation, and whether your submission represents the whole organisation or a section of it)
- your contact details (such as phone number, address, and email).
Submissions are public information
Note, that any submission you make becomes public information. People can ask for copies of submissions under the Official Information Act 1982 (OIA). The OIA says we have to make submissions available unless we have good reasons for withholding them. That is explained in sections 6 and 9 of the OIA.
Tell us if you think there are grounds to withhold specific information in your submission. Reasons might include that it’s commercially sensitive or it’s personal information. However, any decision MPI makes to withhold information can be reviewed by the Ombudsman, who may tell us to release it.
Fisheries New Zealand may post all or parts of any written submission on its website. We’ll consider that you have consented to its publication unless clearly stated otherwise in your submission.
