MPI Consultation - Proposed national environmental standard for marine aquaculture

MPI is seeking your views on the proposed national environmental standard for marine aquaculture (NES: Marine aquaculture).

The proposed NES: Marine aquaculture seeks to:

  • provide a more efficient and certain consent process for managing existing marine farms within environmental limits
  • implement a nationally-consistent framework for biosecurity management on all marine farms.

A series of public meetings and hui will be held as part of the consultation.
