The Ministry for Primary Industries (MPI) is reviewing whether the minimum commercial blue cod pot mesh size in the BCO5 area (Southland including Fiordland, and Stewart, Campbell and Antipodes islands) should be increased from 48mm to 54mm.

MPI wants your feedback on whether to:

  • Increase the minimum cod pot mesh size to 54mm in BCO5, or
  • Retain the current minimum cod pot mesh size of 48mm in BCO5.
