Development Fisher Notice - BCO - Sept 2015


Request for Expression of Interest from young, development Ngati Mutunga o Wharekauri fishers

AHC currently supports 26 NMOW fishers and divers by way of ACE/catch allocations. In order to provide a development opportunity, a 3-4mt parcel of Blue Cod (BCO4) ACE has been specifically set aside for a young NMOW fisher.

AHC is offering the opportunity for young NMOW development fishers to submit an expression of interest for the BCO4 parcel. It is expected that those expressing interest will have previous fishing experience working on other boats but are relatively new entrants in terms of running, operating and skippering their own vessels.

Expressions of interest are to be submitted to Jo Clark at the NMOW Iwi Trust Office and should include:

  • A brief history of relevant fishing experience and details of current fishing operation. 
  • Copies of relevant fishing and vessel management qualifications. 
  • Vessel details including a copy of the Fishing Vessel Registration. 
  • Copy of current Fishing Permit. 
  • Any other relevant details, eg – participation on fishery stakeholder groups, contribution to NMOW, etc. 

Expressions of Interest Close Monday 12th October 2015
