“Fisheries Inshore New Zealand works collaboratively with Government to ensure our impacts on protected species and the marine environment are carefully managed.”
Sustainability is the cornerstone of our business. Without careful stewardship of our marine estate, there would be more limited opportunities to use and enjoy our marine environment; which includes recreational, customary and commercial fisheries as well as other non-extractive activities.
While the Quota Management System is focussed on ensuring our fisheries themselves remain plentiful, the remainder of the Fisheries Act, and other domestic legislation, manages our relationship with the broader marine environment.
