The draft sector specific policies, draft application forms and applicable fees are published in the Government Gazette Number 38871; volume 600 dated 12 June 2015.

 

The Department will be embarking on a public consultation process where Department officials will be engaging with affected and interested parties (stakeholders) countrywide on the draft sector specific policies, draft application forms and applicable fees. During the consultation period, the Minister will solicit the views of members of the fishing industry and interested parties in respect of the proposed policies and processes that will guide the Minister in deciding on the final polices, application forms and fees.
