Dear Ministry for Primary Industries,
I am requesting information on the observer program. Could you please inform me how many observers have been on inshore fishing boats in the last five years. Also how many days have the observers worked on these inshore boats in the five year period. Plus could you please tell me the number of offences that have resulted in prosecutions from these observers reports during this time.
