FISHERIES REGULATION 2008 No. 83 - SECT 29

29 Boundaries of regulated waters on fisheries regulated waters plans

(1) If a fisheries regulated waters plan shows that particular waters (excluded waters) are excluded from the regulated waters shown on the plan, the excluded waters are not regulated waters.

(2) Subject to subsection (3), a line in relation to a boundary of regulated waters on a fisheries regulated waters plan shows what forms the boundary of the regulated waters.

(3) If a regulated waters plan shows a boundary of regulated waters by reference to a geographical feature or fixed structure--

(a) the boundary of the regulated waters is decided by reference to the feature or structure; and
(b) to the extent the boundary is decided by reference to the feature or structure, a line in relation to the boundary shown on the plan is only indicative of the current position of the boundary.
Example--
Regulated waters are shown on a fisheries regulated waters plan by reference to a shore line. Rough weather alters the location of parts of the shore line. The boundary of the regulated waters is decided by reference to the shore line as altered, despite any inconsistency with the location of the shore line as shown on the plan.

(4) If a boundary shown on a fisheries regulated waters plan has a gap in it, the boundary continues in a straight line across the gap to the nearest point of the boundary on the other side of the gap.
