    Lawyers are arguing over the size of any fine for a fishing company that underreported its bluenose catch by 27 tonnes over 12 months

    Lawyers are arguing over the size of any fine for a fishing company that underreported its bluenose catch by 27 tonnes over 12 months


    Hawke's Bay Seafood's directors and factory manager have pleaded guilty to
    130 charges relating to the under-reporting and falsifying of documents.

    It's estimated the company made 253 thousand dollars from selling the fish,
    and avoided more than 200-thousand dollars in fees.

    The Crown is seeking 1.5million dollars in fines - but the company's lawyer
    says that's far too high.

    He's instead suggesting 600-thousand dollars.

    The argument's being heard in the Wellington District Court.
