Fisheries New Zealand consultation - Hector’s and Māui dolphins Threat Management Plan review

Fisheries New Zealand and the Department of Conservation are seeking feedback on the plan to protect Hector’s and Māui dolphins.

Their proposals set out 4 options each for protecting Hector’s and Māui dolphins from fishing-related threats. The proposals also include other proposed restrictions to seismic surveying and seabed mining in areas which could cause cumulative harm to dolphins.

Submission close on 4 August 2019. Due to a large response, MPI has extended the timeframe for submissions to 10am on 19 August 2019.
