This file has a .pdf extensionwhy do we need no take marine reserves
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.

This file has a .pdf extensionfuture marine resource Use
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.

Author(s): D Freeman et al.

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.
