Foreign Fishing Boat Ban

Foreign flagged fishing vessels will not be permitted to operate in NZ waters after 2016.

And that's a damned good thing.

Of course these boats will still be able to operate, subject to NZ law and especially NZ's standards of safety and working conditions.  You know, just like those enemies of the people, the Talley family interests, do now.

Perhaps our commenters can provide a list of the current companies availing themselves of the sub-standard current fleet?  Would that list happen to include any businesses owned by our darker brethren?

I am offended by your darker brethren comment. Your no better than Louis Crimp.

You're far too easily offended. Wait til you get out into the real world.

It is possible you might find many of the worst offending foreign boats are partnered with IWI fishing interests. Funny thing is, you don't seem in the slightest bit offended by that possibility.

By the way, to which IWI are you attached or is your 'offendedness' all from a whitey's perspective?

The confederate flag gravatar, calling Obama the Black Jack of Spades, the dark brethren.

You're perfectly entitled to express your rascist thoughts Adolf, it's just "but Maori are the REAL racists" is a pretty weak way to run a defence of it.

Anon, are you mad? Nowhere have I suggested Maori are racist. Ruthless exploiters of other humans, yes.

Nor have I ever referred to Obama as the Black Jack of Spades. Did you dream that one up?

You'd better watch out for those big words. 'gravatar' is found neither in my Concise Oxford nor any online dictionary I use.

Now piss off and annoy someone else with yoour illiterate drivel.

A gravatar is a small picture you can link to your account with Blogger, Facebook etc. This anonymous is obviously confusing you with Redbaiter, who does have a confederate flag gravatar.

That out of the way, I expect iwi-linked fishing interests are among the worst offenders, along with Whitey-linked companies. I'm not going to feel like the Whitey scum involved reflect anything on me personally, and anyone who thinks the Whitey scum involved do indicate something about Whitey in general is a racist. The principle involved is a generally-applicable one that should lead non-racists to be careful about the conclusions they feel like drawing from the fact iwi-linked companies are also involved.

Which is pretty fucking insulting, now I see it there on the page. What an arsehole!

Interesting comment from MD of Sealords on the Radio this morning in that they struggle to get enough motivated drug free people to work on their boats at present.

Most will not qualify under Survey for this role as they are rust buckets.
Will be interesting as to where the quota holders go as the present vessels will not pass any survey.

Makes you wonder if maybe there should be 'drugs test for the benefit' introduced. You might find suddenly there are heaps of guys lining up for jobs in the fishing and forestry industries.
