Responding to the fishing industry's announcement today that quota will be shelved in the NZ hoki fishery as a result of changing patterns they are observing, WWF New Zealand Chief Executive Officer Livia Esterhazy said:

"WWF applauds the fishing industry for taking prompt action in response to the latest evidence on catch in the Hoki fishery. The responsible thing to do when faced with the kind of change is to take voluntary steps to rectify the situation rather than wait for regulation."
