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.
