It is estimated that something like 90% of New Zealand's biodiversity lives in the sea. In contrast to on land we are still in the pioneer and discovery phase of marine biology and ecology. Virtually everyday a new species is discovered form our marine environment. We bring you here a selected series of papers which examine this incredible diversity of the sea around us.

Author(s): Roger Grace

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.

Author(s): Fish Forever

Fish Forever, a local community group, is proposing two marine reserves and one scientific reserve for the Bay of Islands. The proposal was publicly launched in May 2014, through a Community Consultation Document that invited public submissions over a six-week period. Throughout the submission period, Fish Forever publicised the proposal and engaged with as many locals and stakeholders as possible.
This report presents the results of that community consultation process.
From over 1,300 submissions received, the overwhelming impression is of active community support for the proposal – both in general, and in the specific areas proposed. This clear mandate is vital to moving the proposal process forward.
The submissions also clarify the key areas of community concern about the proposals. These concerns focus on the relationship between marine reserves and other protective measures, like fisheries and customary management regulations, which need to be taken into account in long-term conservation planning for the Bay.

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.
