Abstract or Summary
  • The strategic direction of fisheries management in New Zealand is changing from merely ensuring sustainability to enabling New Zealanders to maximize the value they obtain from the sustainable use of fisheries resources and protection of the aquatic environment. Allocating rights and responsibilities is crucial to achieving this goal of maximizing value. Introducing green-lipped mussel into the quota management system (QMS) illustrates how the Ministry is implementing its new strategic direction and what fisheries management in New Zeland may look like in the future. Green-lipped mussel poses distinct fisheries management challenges as it is harvested at both the juvenile and adult life stages. This paper focuses on the juvenile green-lipped mussel fishery. The fishery supplies seed stock for the New Zealand mussel farming industry. Non-QMS management of the juvenile mussel fishery consisted of a stop-gap permitting regime, method controls and closed areas. Despite there being no pressing sustainability concerns with the fishery, it has been introduced into the QMS to provide for efficient utilization and future development. Managing green-lipped mussel under the QMS aims to provide fishers a greater role in managing their fishery. Green-lipped mussel quota holders propose to set up a Quota Management Company and to prepare a fisheries plan to manage their collective interests. The green-lipped mussel case study illustrates the opportunities that can be created by moving to rights based management, and the challenges of getting there.
