Working together for Kaikoura

The New Zealand seafood industry has welcomed the release of a multi-stakeholder strategy to manage the Kaikoura coastline.

Te Korowai o Te Tai o Marokura released its strategy for the area today, called Sustaining our Sea, after six years of research, discussion and consultation.

New Zealand Seafood Industry Council Chief Executive, Peter Bodeker, said Te Korowai o Te Tai o Marokura was an example of the seafood industry working constructively with all stakeholders to find the best outcome for all.

“Te Korowai o Te Tai o Marokura is a broadly representative group with voices from commercial and recreational fishing, iwi, tourism operators, environmentalists, local government and others.

“The seafood industry always values the opportunity to work with other stakeholders in the interests of good fisheries management.”

The group is calling for public submissions on the strategy until 2 December 2011. For more information go to its website
