4.      Terms used in this Direction that are defined for the purposes of the Southern and Eastern Scalefish and Shark Fishery Management Plan 2003 (the Plan) have the same meanings in this Direction as they have in the Plan.
‘Adjacent Area Boundary’ means the offshore State and Northern Territory boundaries established under Schedule 2 of the Petroleum and Submerged Lands Act 1967 as amended.
‘Automatic baiting equipment’ means any mechanical operation that automatically positions bait on the hooks without the need for each hook/snood to be individually clipped onto the mainline directly by hand during the setting of the gear.
‘Hydraulic hand reel droplining’ means a method of individual droplines which stay attached to the boat, with a maximum soak time of 90 minutes and no more than 25 hooks per individual line.
All geographic coordinates contained within the schedules attached to this document are in terms of the Geocentric Datum of Australia 1994 (GDA94).
Unless otherwise stated, the lines between coordinates are geodesics.
