PROVISIONAL DECISIONS IN FIVE FISHERY SECTORS
The provisional lists and the General Published Reasons (GPR’s) for five sectors: Hake Inshore Trawl, Horse Mackerel, Patagonian Toothfish, Large Pelagics and KZN Beach Seine, have been released. A thirty (30) day comment period will be opened from 11 November 2016 until 11 December 2016, whereby applicants can comment on the provisional list of successful applicants and the proposed quantum/ effort allocation methodologies. The lists will be finalised by 15 December 2016, with the exception of the Patagonian Toothfish sector where the comment period will be fourteen (14) days due to the limited number of applicants and because the season starts on 1 December 2016.
