On 19 November 2019 Fisheries New Zealand advised they were consulting on a draft National Inshore Finfish Fisheries Plan.
The purpose of the plan is to provide an overarching framework to guide the management of inshore finfish fisheries for the next 5 years.
Initially submissions in response to the draft plan were due on 12 February 2020. This deadline was later extended to 19 February.
The New Zealand Sport Fishing Council worked with LegaSea and the New Zealand Angling & Casting Association to jointly submit in response.
The submission was sent to Fisheries New Zealand on 19 February 2020. The submission included 4 recommendations to ensure the maintenance of fish stock abundance and diversity is the primary purpose of any national inshore fisheries plan.
What follows is a summary of relevant available documents and timeline of events. Most recent activity is at the top of the list.
