Fiordland Marine Pathway Plan

A proposal to implement a Fiordland Marine Pathway Plan has been developed by a partnership group including Environment Southland, the Fiordland Marine Guardians, Ministry for Primary Industries, Department of Conservation and Ngai Tahu.

The plan aims to greatly reduce the risk of marine pests being carried in on local and visiting vessels. It establishes clean vessel standards that all vessels entering Fiordland must meet, regardless of their size and also proposes a Fiordland Clean Vessel Pass to ensure vessel owners/operators understand and adhere to the standards.

This plan will affect every boatie entering the Fiordland Marine Area and this is an opportunity for you to have your say. It’s important you tell us what you think about the proposal for a Fiordland Marine Pathway Plan.
