Author(s): Robert Willoughby (Kaimahi)

A rahui was placed on Maunganui Bay from yesterday for two years. Both Ngati Kuta and Patukeha hapu as kaitiaki of Rakaumangamanga and under customary lore have an obligation to ensure abundance of the fishery. Maunganui Bay is void of a healthy fishery. It needs time to regenerate the resident fish populations and there-after a sustainable harvest approach. The rahui will remain in place for two years.

Author(s): Kerwath etal 2013

Sven E. Kerwath1,2, Henning Winker2, Albrecht Go¨tz3 & Colin G. Attwood2

Potential fishery benefits of Marine Protected Areas (MPAs) are widely acknowledged, yet seldom demonstrated, as fishery data series that straddle MPA establishment are seldom available. Here we postulate, based on a 15-year time series of nation-wide, spatially referenced catch and effort data, that the establishment of the Goukamma MPA (18 km alongshore; 40 km2) benefited the adjacent fishery for roman (Chrysoblephus laticeps), a South
African endemic seabream. Roman-directed catch-per-unit-effort (CPUE) in the vicinity of the new MPA immediately increased, contradicting trends across this species’ distribution. The increase continued after 5 years, the time lag expected for larval export, effectively doubling the pre-MPA CPUE after 10 years. We find no indication that establishing the MPA caused a systematic drop in total catch or increased travel distances for the fleet. Our results provide
rare empirical evidence of rapidly increasing catch rates after MPA implementation without measurable disadvantages for fishers.

This file has a .pdf extensionWhile Stocks Last
Author(s): Dr Maj De Poorter

‘While Stocks Last’ is a report, commissioned by Greenpeace. It exposes a disturbing picture of New Zealand’s commercial fisheries and seafood sector. It makes a link between the sustainability of our fisheries and the procurement policies of our supermarkets. It is a wake-up call to all of us; the hard truth is if we continue on in the way we’re going, there will be no fish left for future generations. We must change the way in which we treat the oceans, for the sake of everyone – the fishing industry, our fishing communities and our children.
