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

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. 

Whether for conservation, education or research, we should all be trying to look after what our children’s children might not enjoy as we do today. Please have your say!

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 or phone 0800 687 729.
