South-East Marine Protection Forum

The South-East Marine Protection Forum is consulting on what's important to you in our marine environment from Timaru Breakwater to Waipapa Point.

Click here to see what areas are under discussion as potential marine protected areas (MPAs). Not all areas will be MPAs, but the forum needs your help, especially in identifying options that will minimise impact on Treaty settlements and existing users.

Now is your chance to join the conversation. For all commercial fishing activity related responses, contact Southern Inshore Fisheries Management Ltd's Carol Scott, who is a forum member.
