Author(s): Northland Regional Council

The purpose of this report is to provide council with a suite of
options to determine what extent, if any, council should continue to
support the “National Marine Park for Northland” proposal. It
concludes with the recommendation that the report be received and
that council does not pursue a full business case assessment of the
proposal.

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 extensionPoster - Marine Habitat Map of Northland: Mangawhai to Ahipara Vers. 1
Author(s): Vince Kerr

A poster supporting the version 1 map and report

A marine habitat map for the Northland section of the Northeast Marine
Bioregion in New Zealand’s territorial sea has been completed and is
presented in a series of maps. The maps cover an area of 1.34 million
hectares extending out 12 nautical miles from the coast between Ahipara
in the west to Mangawhai on the east coast.

Data were collated from a range of recent and historic sources,
and merged and analysed in ArcGIS 9.3.1 Geographical Information
System. These data include multibeam and sidescan sonar data from
the National Institute for Water and Atmospheric Research and Land
Information New Zealand. A ‘rapid sonar survey’ technique was developed
to fill data gaps for areas not covered by past or recent survey effort.
These sources and methods are described to assist in understanding
the strengths and weaknesses of the current habitat maps and to help
implement improvements in this and future work.

The use of the habitat maps to identify potential locations for a network
of marine protected areas in Northland is discussed and recommendations
are made to incorporate this information within decision support tools
to assist in planning, education and community engagement.
