Abstract or Summary
  • Conflict between the recreational and commercial sectors in New Zealand is largely limited to the fishery within the Territorial Sea. Although most of New Zealand’s fisheries’ value comes from mid to deep water stocks outside the Territorial Sea, there are a number of commercially valuable inshore fisheries. Traditionally, conflict between the two sectors has been resolved through spatial management tools. However since the introduction of individual transferable quotas in the commercial sector (1986), conflict between the sectors has increasingly shifted towards disputes over allocation of the Total Allowable Catch. The Fisheries Act 1996 current allocation process is discussed along with several cases where the High Court has provided advice on the allocation process The contrasting positions of the two sectors towards such an allocation process are discussed. Allocations would be difficult to define because the precision of recreational catch estimates is low, and secondly because there is no common basis for determining the relative value of the two fisheries. To provide a framework for understanding the nature of the New Zealand recreational and commercial fishery, the two sectors are compared using three characteristics; governance, institutions, and rights. The paper concludes with some principles which may provide guidance on reducing conflict between the two sectors.
