Fishers under-report hoki catch: Talley's Nelson boss responds

From Morning Report, 7:14 am on 24 May 2018

Some of the country's biggest fishing companies have been under-reporting their hoki catch by hundreds of tonnes, according to a leaked fisheries report. The report has been kept secret from the public for seven years and environmentalists say it casts doubt on industry claims that lucrative hoki is being fished sustainably. The companies include Sanford and Talley's. Tony Hazlett, chief executive of Talley's Nelson, talks to Susie Ferguson.
