  3. That sentence reminds of my nephews plumbing problem, rang a plumber ,2 young guys turned up and walked straight through house in dirty boots, Matt asked which one of you is the tradesman.1st one was 1st yr apprentice 2nd one yr 2 apprentice. Matt rang company and said if I am paying tradesman wage I expect a tradesman to accompany apprentices. He went else where.

  10. The concern is 3 more yrs till they put cameras on. Talking to a trawler guy and he said they have certain trawl lines they follow,up and down that line week in week out,if the net is or has removed/damaged the seabed why are the fish still? Not defending them but is the info we are getting correct, Blaming commercial scallopers in mercury bay/opito bay for lack of scallops when they have been banned for 5 or so yrs.Now the report came out blaming what we have been doing on the land,which is something i have said for awile.releasing heavy metals/silt and the seafood dies or moves off..
