Abstract
  • New Zealand manages commercial access and allocation through the market-based Quota Management System (QMS). However, the QMS alone is currently insufficient to address several fisheries issues. New Zealand is now developing Objectives-Based Fisheries Management (OBFM) to complement the QMS along two dimensions. First, to improve fisheries outcomes, such as reduced environmental impact, improved yields from stocks (or a better match between research effort and catch limits). Second, to improve management processes, such as increasing and broadening stakeholder participation, increasing the credibility and transparency of decisions, and better integrating management processes (for example, between government and industry research, or between management and compliance planning). Fisheries Plans, led by the Ministry of Fisheries (the Ministry), draw together stakeholders to develop specific management objectives. This group then uses a risk management approach to determine management actions. Plans contain objectives, services to be delivered, responsibilities for implementation, performance measures and a monitoring and review plan. OBFM Fisheries Plans are being developed in three fisheries, before extending the approach across all fisheries. This paper tracks their development, and examines their limitations and benefits. Comparisons are drawn with similar initiatives in other jurisdictions. Options for organizing future plans are discussed. The work program for developing other fisheries plans is outlined. The views expressed in this paper are not necessarily shared by the New Zealand Ministry of Fisheries.
