The purpose of this survey is to help the Fiordland Marine Guardians build a broader picture of the experiences and concerns of those who fish in the Fiordland Marine Area (FMA).
We want to understand fishers’ concerns about fisheries sustainability, the current health of recreational fish stocks and overall fishing experience in the FMA as we develop recommendations to the Minister of Oceans and Fisheries.
Manaaki Whenua-Landcare Research is conducting this survey on behalf of the Guardians. It should take less than 15 minutes. Participation in the survey is voluntary. The results are anonymous.
We will consider the results from this survey alongside input from two focus group hui before making recommendations to the Minister of Oceans and Fisheries, Hon. David Parker, in mid-2021.
The survey results will also be made available via our website.
