HOW TO DEFEND TROUT.
Trout anglers can immediately help defend trout by sending an e mail to Dr Guy Preston (
) headed "Draft AIS Lists and Regulations" drafted along the following lines. "Dear Dr Preston I intend submitting representations regarding the Draft AIS Lists and Regulations but in order to do so I require the following:
1 Why must we address our representations to you rather than the Director General as is normally the case? Have you the requisite delegated legal authority to deal with this important matter?
2.Given that our law requires that notices such as this must be accompanied by sufficient information to enable the public to consult, why is it that you have given the public no such information ?
3 Please tell me in sufficient detail why it is that each of the species mentioned in the draft list are invasive. In particular please advise why these species pose ecological threats in the areas and manner you want the Minister to list them as invasive and why this threat causes harm or is likely to cause harm to human health and well being.
4 Please tell me why the existing AIS regulations are being replaced by new ones and how they are different to the old regulations and why the changes are necessary.?
5 Given that the National Environmental Management Act says that environmental principles set out in section 2 of that Act must be applied to all environmental decision making including the listing of species of invasive and the making of regulations, how were these principles applied in the process that resulted in the Draft AIS Lists and Regulations?
The 30 day consultation period is running so I would appreciate that you provide me with this necessary information as soon as possible.
