Super Trawler

A quote from Gerry Geen in 2008

A quote from AFMA 2004

No new science since 2004, so what has changed?

From what I can tell Gerry Geen has been involved in, the implementation of tradable quotas in Australia, re-zoning the 4 pelagic zones(A,BC&D) into the two large zones we have got, requesting the increase in the quota, overseeing the increase of the quota. And now his company has joined into some grey partnership with Parlevliet & Van der Plas to bring in the Abel Tasman (Margiris) the first freezer trawler into Australia, and this is only possible due to all those changes he helped facilitate.
