Why do we need no take marine reserves

title

Date Posted: 21 May 2015 | 0 Comments

In New Zealand, when we talk of no-take zones in the sea we really mean
marine reserves, set up under the Marine Reserves Act 1971. Although there
are a few other ways of achieving full protection, the Marine Reserves Act is
the specific piece of legislation designed for this purpose. It does have some
short-comings, however, and to correct some of these a new Marine Reserves
Bill has been prepared, but has been languishing in the storage cupboards of
Parliament with no action for more than ten years.

A well written paper by Dr Roger Grace
