Make a submission on the Fisheries Amendment Bill

Right now there is a bill before parliament that will severely reduce public participation in the way fisheries are managed in New Zealand. This means that when commercial and recreational catch limits are reviewed and set, submissions from the public and interest groups will no longer be sought or considered.

This is a huge step backwards in fisheries management and will allow an already industry captured ministry to review fisheries internally and most likely review in the commercial industry’s favour.

We need to stop this Bill from removing the public’s voice from our fisheries. Use the form below to make your voice heard.

Deadline: 11.59pm, Friday 17 June 2022
