Fisheries Planning

Fisheries planning processes for deepwater, highly migratory species, inshore finfish, inshore shellfish and freshwater fisheries use objective-based management to drive the delivery of Ministry’s services in support of the Government’s goal and outcomes for the fisheries sector, as described in Fisheries 2030. The planning processes are guided by National Fisheries Plans, which recognise the distinctive characteristics of our fisheries by tailoring management objectives and service strategies.
