MPI is seeking feedback from tangata whenua and stakeholders on a proposal to set a new closure under section 11 of the Fisheries Act 1996, to replace the current emergency closure when it expires on the 20th of November 2017.

The consultation document proposes that a new closure should apply to all shellfish (excluding rock lobster and scampi) and seaweed in the earthquake-affected area defined by the current emergency closure.
