 n.— «Investigations late last year found the commercial boats had been fishing off one part of Stewart Island and then reporting the catch as having been made in another area. The ministry says its analysis of the first suspicious trip revealed that six previous catches had also been falsely reported. It says the practice, known as “trucking,” is common, and has a huge effect on the sustainability of fish stocks.» —“Korean fishing boats fined for false catch reports” Radio New Zealand Oct. 18, 2008.
