IN BRIEF - Response to Hector's and Maui Threat Management proposals - Seafood NZ

NEW ZEALAND
Monday, June 17, 2019

This is a complex document and we need time to consider its implications.

The industry is concerned about dolphin protection and has worked hard to minimise risk, with demonstrable success.

We are also concerned about the wellbeing of our members. Hundreds of families could be affected by these proposals. There are also implications for those who value continued supplies of fresh seafood.

We hope there is proper consultation and this is not just a whitewash.

There has been close engagement to date and the industry will continue to work constructively.

The Government also needs to be mindful of its obligations under the Deed of Settlement, which recognised the fishing rights embodied in the Treaty of Waitangi.

IN BRIEF - Cyclone batters fishing hub but veers away from Indian coast

INDIA
Thursday, June 13, 2019

VERAVAL - A cyclone in the Arabian Sea battered an Indian fishing hub with heavy wind, wave and rain Thursday and was forecast to still bring dangerous weather even as it veered away from the western coast.

The India Meteorological Department says Cyclone Vayu, the season's second major storm and named after the Hindi word for wind, has jogged west, skirting the coast of the western state of Gujarat and unlikely to hit it head on as previously forecast. Pakistan warned of rough seas and dangerous heat, though the cyclone wasn't expected to directly hit the port city of Karachi.

In anticipation of the storm, rescue workers evacuated nearly 300,000 people, taking a cue from Cyclone Fani, which came ashore on India's eastern coast in May, killing 34 people in India and 15 in neighboring Bangladesh.
