This file has a .pdf extensionFish Forever submission results for community led marine reserve in the Bay of Islands
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): 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.
