(NEW ZEALAND, 9/27/2018)
New Zealand's firms holding hoki fishing quotas have agreed on the reduction of their cath volumes for 2019 in response to changing patterns they are observing in one of the five fishing grounds of the species.
The decision, announced by Deepwater Group, includes shelving 20,000 tonnes of West Coast quota, which represents a 22 per cent catch reduction for the West Coast hoki fishery.
At the same time, industry leaders have agreed there will be no carryover of any uncaught West Coast quota from the 2017/18 fishing year.
