& ways to protect the Hector Dolphin
Catholic Church Parish Hall
Friday 26 July 2019, 4.30pm - 8pm
The Government has put out the Hector and Maui Dolphin Threat Management (TMP) for consultation. The TMP provides a blanket solution to protecting New Zealand Hector Dolphins.
The proposed plan may potentially have a large impact for our fishing operations in Kaikōura. It will impact 4 businesses, up to 15 employees and over 7 families. Some businesses may lose between 76% - 98% of their operations.
This in turn will impact local supporting businesses which supply the industry.
It is important as a community that we understand about our marine mammals, the environment and the natural and human impacts that will affect Hector Dolphins sustainability. It is critical for Kaikoura to ensure protection of our marine mammals and environment whilst balancing this with our sustainable marine economy.
