A key issue in fisheries management is the need to exam the ecological impacts of fishing and sustainability of the ocean as a natural systems.

Author(s): B. L. Chisnall

Chisnall, B.L, 1994.
An unexploited mixed species eel stock (Anguilla australis and A. dieffenbachii) in a Waikato pastoral stream, and its modification by fishing pressure.
Conservation Advisory Science Notes No. 69, Department of Conservation, Wellington. 9p.

Advice was sought by the Department of Conservation (Hamilton) to answer the following questions:

1. What comprises an unexploited mixed species eel population in a pastoral stream?

2. What are the effects of repeated removal of commercial sized eels on a previously unfished eel population?

A study to validate aging techniques for eels completed for MAF Fisheries in a Waikato lowland pastoral stream (Chisnall & Kalish 1993), has provided information on the structure of an unexploited mixed species eel population (shortfinned eel, Anguilla australis and longfinned eel, A. dieffenbachii ). Most of the resident population was then removed after one year, and for the three following years sampling was carried out to assess the population and to remove marketable sized eels (> 220 g). The data gathered over these five consecutive years (1988-1992) has provided information on the recovery of the eel stock after intensive fishing.

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

Author(s): Dr. Ingrid Visser

Killer whales (Orcinus orca) interact with longline fisheries around the world, however they have not previously been reported taking fish off longlines in New Zealand waters. Two new killer whale prey species (school shark, Galeorhinus galeus and bluenose, Hyperoglyphe antarchia) have been recorded.
A great deal of effort has been applied, world wide, to reduce killer whale-fishery interactions, but few methods are successful. Fishers in New Zealand have used ‘tuna bombs’ and shooting.

This file has a .pdf extensionKaikoura Marine Guardians Newsletter 2011
Author(s): Kaikoura Coastal Guardians

The Te Korowai o Te Tai O Marokura - Kaikoura Coastal Marine Guardians have released their latest newsletter and are working on a marine strategy. They are also still keen to hear from people.
http://fishnet.co.nz/teamkorowai/” title=“http://fishnet.co.nz/teamkorowai/”>http://fishnet.co.nz/teamkorowai/

This is an abstract from their newsletter:
We are very close to presenting a variety of protection tools (and measures) via our strategy and will be seeking feedback from all interested parties including the Rūnanga, Kaikoura community and user groups, both local and further afield.
Throughout this process, we must remind ourselves constantly of our purpose and our vision and this was summed up superbly recently, by one of our members (Tony Brett).
“Remember the gifts come before the gains and the gains may not always be immediately apparent!”
This timely reminder puts into perspective what Te Korowai sets out to achieve and that in order to protect our resources for future generations, we must look to what is best for everyone, put aside individual partiality (the gift), so that all will benefit in the future (the gain).

Author(s): Paul Roux De Buisson

This study used baited video to measure full no take protection compared to partial protection. After 10 years of full protection at the Poor Knights snapper counts were 14 times greater than before. Snapper abundance within the partially protected marine park was not significantly different to comparison sites on the open coast.

Author(s): D Egli and R Babcock

The story of the crayfish - Crayfish (Jasus edwardsii) are an important component of temperate reef ecosystems. They have shown a dramatic increase in numbers inside the marine reserve at Leigh, where crayfish numbers are about 4 times higher than in adjacent fished areas. In other reserves the protected population is even higher. Crayfish inside the Leigh reserve are about 10% larger than elsewhere.
