IN BRIEF - Border exemptions leaves fishing industry 'hugely relieved'

Monday, September 28, 2020

NZ-flagged deepsea trawlers which were set to be tied up due to overseas worker shortages could be back fishing again by November.

The Government has established time-limited border entry exceptions for up to 30 veterinarians, 570 deep sea fishing crew and 210 agricultural and horticultural mobile plant operators.

The move has left some in the industry “hugely relieved”.

In exchange for the border exception, the fishing industry has committed to removing barriers to employing New Zealanders, including reviewing pay structures and business models, and investing significantly in training and education.

Stuff recently reported some fishing companies were out of business while others were bracing for large financial hits as the deep water New Zealand industry, unable to get skilled foreign workers into the country, began tying up vessels.

The restrictions come as China tightens seafood imports from a number of sources due to the coronavirus.

Customs on Friday said it would suspend seafood imports from a Brazilian company for a week after a package of fish tested positive for the coronavirus.

Last week, China suspended imports from an Indonesian seafood producer for one week after a batch of its frozen hairtail fish tested positive for the coronavirus.

Chinese authorities in the northeastern Jilin province had also detected the virus on the packaging of imported squid from Russia last week.
