Fisheries New Zealand (FNZ), a business unit of the Ministry for Primary Industries (MPI), is undertaking this procurement to identify, and ultimately deploy on a timely basis, a fit for purpose end to end On-Board Camera, Data Management and Associated Services (on-board cameras) solution that is innovative and cost efficient to the in-scope commercial fishing fleet of New Zealand.
On 17 June 2021, the Minister for Oceans and Fisheries, Hon David Parker announced the wider rollout of on-board cameras starting mid-2022 and detailed the rollout of cameras on up to 300 commercial fishing vessels by 2024. This rollout is targeted at covering inshore fishing vessels which post the greatest risk to protected species and/or have significant amounts of fish bycatch.
When completed, on-board cameras will provide independent and accurate information about commercial fishing activity. This will provide greater certainty and more evidence on which to base decisions about policy and regulation, scientific research and fisheries management on.
The resulting scope and the deployment schedule may change following the consultation process and subsequent Government (Cabinet) decisions. Following the awarding of the contract opportunity any variation to the procurement requirements, resulting from consultation and subsequent Cabinet decisions, will be negotiated with the successful supplier. Respondents must base their submission on what is currently contained in the tender documentation which reflects the Minister’s June 2021 announcement.
