Minister to Announce Abalone Fishery Opening in Hawston
The Minister of Fisheries, Tina Joemat-Pettersson, will announce the re-opening of the abalone fishery in Hawston at 3pm on 18 June 2010. A venue has not yet been decided but we will keep you updated. Abalone right holders should attend the announcement as the decision to reopen the fishery is only the start of a process to get right holders back in the water.
Right holders will surely want to know what the TAC is, what compliance plan and budget is in place and what management and recovery plan is being considered.
