If you spot floats but cant get to them to collect them, please complete this form - https://www.marinefarming.co.n...

FLOAT SPOTTER REPORT

If you spot a rogue float(s) but can’t get to there to pick them up for some reason (this could be because your vessel can’t access the area, weather etc).

Please complete the “Float Spotter” form in the app, that way the MFA can get someone in the area to collect the floats asap before they float off again.

**We highly recommend all vessels carrying a dingy so all can get onto tricky beaches to retrieve lost floats**

FEEDBACK REPORT

This report exists for feedback & complaints – good, bad, or otherwise.

You may also have a great idea or suggestion for us, we know that the best ideas come from the cold face, so this is a great place to put your ideas forward.
