South-East Marine Protection Forum
A huge effort has been made by the South-East Marine Protection Forum to come up with recommendations for protection of the seas off the Otago coast. These details were released last week and can be seen online at south-eastmarine.org.nz
The Trust is making a submission and recommends readers to do the same.
The public sessions will be good to simplify the process and you can talk to forum members and immediately submit on any topic large or small about managing the dwindling marine life and degraded seabed off the Otago coast.
In Dunedin the public information sessions are :
Sat 5 Nov 10-4pm Otago Yacht Club
Sun 6 Nov 12-5pm Port Chalmers Town Hall
Sun 20 Nov 12-5pm Otakou Marae
Submissions close 20 Dec. Public sessions can be viewed on line at www.south-eastmarine.org.nz
