Thanks BP, I was going to post it too, NRC always uses "vessels" dirty bottoms when referring to Med fan worm as the method of its spread, no mention of tides, coastal currents etc. etc. It would be interesting to see how much has been spent on "containing / eradicating the fan worm. It has to be in the millions!

The Herald article say we should call biosecurity NZ if we see one. Should we call them and let hem know they are all over the Auckland Marina structures etc Keep them busy.

I hung up.
I got the number by calling the customs guy in whangarei whose number i had ( hes a decent bloke). I rang that number and left a message asking them to call back. It never happened even though i left the message twice .
So while i like that idea i probably wont participate.

It's like all the bureaucratic agencies......they put up their contact details but there is no one there to answer the phones.........
In the CEO's report we have met our KPI's as there where no reporting of the Fan Worm in our area.
