In-season increase for the Total Allowable Catch (TAC) for the Coromandel Scallop Fishery

The Minister for Primary Industries has recently approved an in-season TAC increase for the Coromandel scallop fishery (SCA CS) for the 2012-13 April fishing year.

Specifically, the Minister has increased the TAC to 370 tonnes, including

  • a Maori customary allowance of 10 tonnes
  • a recreational allowance of 10 tonnes
  • an allowance for other sources of fishing related mortality of 25 tonnes, and
  • a TACC of 325 tonnes

These measures will apply until 30 March 2013, after which time, the TAC will revert to the baseline TAC of 48 tonnes.
