Video: Why Tasman and Golden Bays?
Tasman Bay/Te Tai-o-Aorere and Golden Bay/Mohua are our ‘case study area’, where we are testing the tools and knowledge for ecosystem-based management (EBM) that we are generating.
The majority of our research is happening from the bottom of the North Island to the top of the South Island and down to the Chatham Rise. This area includes both coastal and offshore waters, and a variety of marine environments; as well as many different uses, activities and interests – some of which are competing. This diversity is a good basis for developing the tools and knowledge needed for EBM.
