Tell MPI you agree with managing fish stocks for higher abundance.
Submissions close 5pm 23 December 2016 – send yours today!
Why is this so important?
Until now NZ fish stocks have been managed to achieve the Maximum Sustainable Yield (MSY) for individual species.
Unfortunately, for many fish species, a commercial fishery can be sustainable at low levels of fish abundance, for example Hauraki Gulf snapper stocks have been at about 20% of natural abundance for the past 30 years.
1st May 2014 | Fish Forever has released its consultation document proposing the protection of 10% of the enclosed waters of the Bay of Islands with no-take marine reserves, subject to generational review (25 years). Read how the proposed areas and boundaries took shape here
22nd October 2014 | After a great deal of number crunching, Fish Forever is pleased to release its report on the submissions to the Community Consultation Document proposing two marine reserves and a scientific reserve in the Bay of Islands. We urge you to read the report which describes how the community responded to the discussion.
