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.Fiordland Marine Pathway Plan - Consultation DocumentFiordland Marine Pathway Plan - Full Proposal
