Abstract or Summary
  • There is increasing awareness of and concern about the actual and potential adverse effects of fishing on the aquatic environment. New Zealand, like many other countries, has developed a range of initiatives to address specific issues related to the effects of fishing, including establishing marine reserves, fishing method restrictions, observer programmes, imposition of marine mammal bycatch limits and the requirement for fishers to use bycatch mitigation devices. However, to date, these initiatives have been largely reactive and somewhat ad hoc. The Fisheries Act 1996 establishes a set of strong environmental and information obligations, including requirements to avoid, remedy and mitigate any adverse effects of fishing on the aquatic environment, meet the foreseeable needs of future generations, and be cautious when information is uncertain, unreliable or inadequate. The principles in the Act form the basis for developing a strategy for managing the effects of fishing on the aquatic environment. In this paper we describe the process being used to develop the Strategy, key components of the Strategy, and associated policy challenges.
