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.
