MPI Consultation - Temporary Closure of the Southern Scallop (SCA7) Fishery 2018

Fisheries New Zealand is seeking feedback on whether:

  • a further temporary closure of the Southern Scallop fishery (SCA7) should be implemented for the coming scallop season, which starts on 15th July 2018
  • the small Port Underwood recreational fishery, which is immediately adjacent to (but not part of) SCA7, should also be closed to protect it from increased harvest pressure.
