New Zealand is currently preparing to establish a network of marine protected areas based on our existing marine reserves and 'other' types of protection or partial protection established under the Fisheries Act. There will be some very important processes we will go through to achieve the lofty goal of protecting marine biodiversity and ecosystems for the future. These resources have been collected to assist in this process.

Author(s): The Royal Society of New Zealand

In just a few decades, the fisheries industry has transitioned from crisis to a substantial and long-term generator of wealth for New Zealand. As shown by New Zealand’s experience with the fisheries Quota Management System, institutions matter. Our developing understanding of New Zealand ocean energy, minerals and petroleum, ecosystems and biodiversity all suggest that more potential sources of wealth are present in our oceans. However, appropriate management frameworks (i.e. institutions) are critical if New Zealand is to develop its marine resources efficiently and responsibly.

Trajectories of spiny lobster Jasus edwardsii recovery in New Zealand marine reserves: is settlement a driver?

SUMMARY
Monitoring species’ response inmarine protected areas is important for informing both the management
of those areas and the establishment of additional protected areas. Populations of spiny lobsters Jasus
edwardsii were monitored in eight New Zealand marine reserves for up to 34 years. The populations displayed
highly variable responses to protection. While a few showed rapid (within 1–2 years of protection) increases in abundance, others showed little response
even after a decade of protection. Some reserves showed little initial recovery, then a sudden increase following several years of protection, while others
displayed significant declines in abundance following initial recovery. Marine reserves located in areas with initially high densities of juveniles tended to
have rapid recovery, but aspects of reserve design had no significant influence on the recovery rate.
Variability among recovery trajectories also suggests that supply-side dynamics may be a key driver
of lobster recovery. Densities of legal-sized lobsters were positively correlated with reserve age, but the
abundance of juvenile lobsters increased in all but one reserve, indicating enhanced recruitment, survival
and/or movement of juvenile lobsters into reserves. It is important to consider the placement of reserves,
with respect to potential levels of larval supply, when establishing marine reserves for either conservation
or fisheries management purposes and for evaluating their effectiveness.

Author(s): High Court of New Zealand - Christchurch

The High Court has told the Government to reconsider its decision to reject a proposal for a marine reserve in Akaroa.
The Akaroa Harbour Marine Protection Society applied for a marine reserve near Dan Rogers’ Bluff in Akaroa Harbour in 1995.
The Conservation Minister declined the application because a reserve would interfere with recreational fishing.
The society appealed to the High Court saying the minister did not weigh up the positives of the proposed reserve and the effects on recreational fishing.
Judge Nathanial Whata found that the application must be reconsidered.

This file has a .pdf extensionTe Korowai Marine Strategy - a call for submissions
Author(s): Kaikoura Coastal Guardians

The launch of Te Korowai o Te Tai o Marokura draft marine Strategy August 2011 was held on Thursday, 1 September 2011.
Te Korowai now invite you to tell us your views of the proposed Strategy.
Please tell us how we can make this strategy better, more effective, long lasting, and capable of your support.

There is a Submission letter available with advice for those who wish to make a submission.

Te Tai o Marokura, the Kaikoura marine environment, is an ecological system where
the whole is far more than the sum of the parts. Similarly the proposed Strategy is an
integrated whole, reflecting the six years of research and discussion by Te Korowai.
Each part of the Strategy is important and no part can be properly understood in
isolation from the rest. We invite you to approach the Strategy in this same spirit and
encourage you to engage with the full Strategy.

Te Korowai have done our very best to work for the greater good of the people of Kaikoura,
the well being of its natural environment, and to secure opportunities for future
generations. We are not perfect and neither is our work. We offer this strategy
humbly, but with a measure of satisfaction that we have put everything we could into
it. We know that there is great wisdom in our community, and amongst people all
over the world who have come to love the Kaikoura environment. Please tell us how
we can make this strategy better, more effective, long lasting, and capable of your
support.
Every submission made to us will be analysed, compared with the ideas of others, and
taken into account to help finalise the Strategy. Te Korowai will report to you with an analysis
of submissions, a clear record of the decisions we make on the submissions, and how
we have dealt with conflicting views. The final Strategy will be much briefer, without
the background material included in this current proposal. It will focus on the actions
that need to be taken.
Special legislation may be required to give effect to this Strategy. This was the case
with the Fiordland Guardians. The same need for various legal requirements to come
into place at the same time is also true in Kaikoura. Any such Bill will be subject to
Select Committee hearings and everyone will then get another say.
We thank you for your patience, encourage your submissions, and look forward to the
dialogue and discussion over the next three months.

YOUR VIEWS

Te Korowai would really value your views on the our proposed Strategy and invite you to send your comments to us by email or post to the addresses given below:

- Please make sure your contact details (surname, initial and email/postal address) are clearly marked on your submission so that we can send you a copy of the submissions summary.

- This document presents an integrated strategy for the management of the Kaikoura Coast. The process involved ‘gifts and gains’ by the various sectors represented around the table and we encourage you to view it as a whole package, providing protection and enhancement of our coastline for future generations. Please make any general comments about the Strategy as a whole, at the beginning of your submission.

- As you record your comments, we ask that you follow the order of the document and refer to the section of the draft you are commenting on, to help us take account of your views.

- Please include reasons for your comments and include reference to any information we may not have been aware of, while we were drafting the Strategy.

- All submissions will be treated as public documents and used to compile a summary report for Te Korowai. The summary report will be made public and may include quotes from submissions to illustrate key points.

We look forward to receiving your views by: 2 December 2011
