For the last few years the Ministry for Primary Industries has contracted Young Fishing Limited to undertake hull inspections of known Fiordland-bound vessels based in Bluff and Stewart Island for the presence of marine pests e.g. the invasive seaweed Undaria pinnatifida.
As of 1 May, until 31 October 2019, there will be no routine monthly vessel hull inspections for marine pests undertaken by Young Fishing Ltd in Bluff and Stewart Island. However, if you are travelling to Fiordland over this time on-request inspections are still available.
To arrange an on-request inspection during this period, please contact Young Fishing Ltd on 027 680 1258 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
