Our research aims to identify new ways for people to get involved in making decisions about the management and future of Aotearoa New Zealand’s marine estate.
Sustainable Seas National Science Challenge researchers are hoping that marine health data gathered on a recent field trip to Queen Charlotte Sounds will support more integrated management of the ecosystem.
The Sustainable Seas National Science Challenge leadership team have proposed seven major principles for ecosystem-based management (EBM) in Aotearoa New Zealand.
The Minister of Research, Science and Innovation has today announced the Sustainable Seas National Science Challenge will receive $39.8 million for the second five-year phase of the Challenge. Funding will start on 1 July 2019.
Challenge researchers are strengthening links with Canadian research programmes involved in ocean conservation, climate change, and social and economic development of marine environments.
A recently completed Sustainable Seas Challenge research project has examined the Kaituna River re-diversion as a case study for how best to involve and engage communities and Māori in marine resource management.
These projects either enhance use of our marine resources within environmental and biological constraints or increase diversification in marine economies
