DSCC Submission to Fisheries New Zealand: Review of sustainability measures for 1 October 2019

Date: July 23, 2019

The DSCC calls on the New Zealand Government to protect all seamounts in New Zealand’s Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ), and to stop issuing high seas permits to bottom trawl vessels, which almost exclusively target seamounts and similar deep-sea features when they fish in international waters of the South Pacific and Tasman Sea regulated by the South Pacific Regional Fisheries Management Organisation (SPRFMO).
