Proposed Deemed Value Standard Released for Consultation with Short Timeframe

The MFISH letter seeking consultation on a new Deemed Value Standard has been circulated today 9/11/2010 with formal submissions closing on 30/11/2010. This is an important issue for all inshore fishermen, ACE holders and quota owners. We urge you to consider the documents attached below and make your submissions.

Deemed Values and TACC levels, particularly for inshore mixed species fisheries, are closely interlinked but the new standard does not appear to take this into consideration at all.
