Sick green sea turtle finny set for broome rehabilitation
A small collection of sick green sea turtle fins is to be used for broome rehabilitation, despite a ban on selling them in supermarkets.
The turtles were picked from the sea around 오바마 카지노Broome Island and brought to the Bay of Plenty where the fish farms are currently processing them.
The farm in Whiting had a licence to sell the live fish, but no permit to grow them, so when the trade ended in March 2012 they decided to sell the turtles to a small group of buyers from outside the UK.
Dennis Smith, managing direc에스엠 카지노tor of Broome Marine Farm, said he had been unaware of any restrictions.
“When they began to buy the whole collection [they knew] from our sales representatives they were taking them and we could not legally sell them to our current customers as our licences had expired,” he said.
“In August 2012 we were contacted by the Department of Conservation and Fisheries (DOCF) informing us they wanted to make changes to the licence for Broome, so as a result we gave them our consent to buy all of the turtles as part of broome rehabilitation.”

Smith said although he did not know whether broome turtles from the wild were still alive and well in 2014, he hoped their collection would now be used for broome rehabilitation.
Broome Island is the island that was once home to a number of rare green sea turtles from New Zealand.
The last of the birds was discovered in 1985, but a large population of sick green sea turtles have been spotted outside their habitat, near the mouth of the Bay of Plenty, ever since.
They have been spotted in rivers, in creeks and ponds and in the middle of beaches where the bay waters are high and calm and the turtle fins would be a perfect source of food.
Broome has about 30 turtles, of which 15 will be sold and 10 are being used for broome rehabilitation, he said.
“We have used a small team of volunteer farmers who are also on the farms to grow the finle올인 119ts,” he said.
Smith said he hoped the sale of the finlets would make broome the “staple” green turtle catch in New Zealand, attracting other birds that may have a good chance of surviving in the wild.
