NZ First has scuppered plans for a panel to provide advice on New Zealand’s fishing industry.
Fisheries Minister Stuart Nash planned to revitalise the technical advisory panel, which was set up by the National Government to give expert advice on making fishing sustainable long-term.
But in the latest of a series of backdowns those plans are now abandoned, a source said – because NZ First doesn’t think the panel is needed, and resisted the appointment of environmental activists.
This stinks, as Russel Norman points out…
…so commercial fishing pay Shane a big donation and Shane cuts back on oversight of the commercial fishing industry.
Doesn’t that smell fishy?
When you consider the environmental vandalism many of these fishing companies cause, when you consider the slave conditions on the ships many of these fishing companies manifest and when you consider how MPI turns a blind eye to overfishing, to hear that a Politician they donated to has now shut down oversight of their industry starts looking like outright corruption doesn’t it?
