In August 2011 Te Korowai o Te Tai o Marokura, the Kaikoura Coastal Marine Guardians, released their proposed, draft Kaikoura Marine Strategy: Sustaining Our Sea 2011. Te Korowai asked for submissions.
On 5 December 2011 the New Zealand Sport Fishing Council submitted in response to the proposals. There are many factors that affect the public’s ability to fish and enjoy a healthy marine environment. All Council submissions are made with the objective of achieving “more fish in the water”.
The NZSFC acknowledged the enormous amount of effort that must have gone into developing the draft Strategy. This community proposal included a whale sanctuary, taiapure, mataitai, marine reserves and lower recreational daily bag limits.
The New Zealand Sport Fishing Council supported Te Korowai’s intent, but submitted that the proposed local management initiatives could be achieved using current legislation, and that no alternative proposals were necessary.
Due to the overwhelming response, Te Korowai’s summary of submissions was delayed by several months. In August 2012 a summary of submissions and decision table was released to the 169 submitters. Te Korowai advised the final Strategy, modified by submitters’ input, would be launched in October 2012.
