Marine Biosecurity Team


Have your say on better ways to stop marine pests in the top of the North Island.

To protect the coastlines we all love, the four northern-most regions are considering new marine biosecurity rules.

As the movement of boats increases, so too does the risk of marine pests spreading.

With support from Biosecurity New Zealand, four regional councils – Northland, Auckland, Waikato and Bay of Plenty Toi Moana – are exploring whether having hull-fouling rules that are applied consistently across several regions would be a better way forward.

Read the discussion document to find out more about the problem and the options being considered.

Before submitting your feedback come along to one of our infomation evenings. The Auckland Council team will be there to answer any questions or concerns that you may have.
