This Regulatory Impact Statement (RIS) has been prepared by the Ministry for Primary Industries (MPI). It provides an analysis of options to address concerns over the sustainability of the blue cod 5 (BCO5) fishery, due to undersized fish being caught in cod pots with a minimum mesh size of 48 mm. The preferred option is to increase the regulated minimum commercial cod pot mesh size in BCO5 to 54 mm.
