Make a submission on Blue Cod 3

Blue cod 3 is under review and Fisheries New Zealand is accepting submissions from the public.

Fisheries NZ has proposed two options for the future management of blue cod on the east coast of the South Island.

Option 1: retain current commercial catch limits, cut the annual recreational allowance by 20%.

Option 2: cut commercial catch limits and the annual recreational allowance by 20%.

LegaSea is supporting South Island fishers in advocating for Option 3.

Option 3 is a 33% reduction to the total allowable commercial catch, a ban on inshore trawling, a reasonable annual allowance and fair rules to manage recreational fishing.

We need you to support Option 3. Use the form below to make your own submission.

Deadline: 5pm, 27 July 2021.
