Article
Attempts to protect and preserve New Zealand's wild and scenic rivers received statutory support in 1981 through amendments to the Water and Soil Conservation Act 1967. These legislative provisions, Water Conservation Orders, were retained in the Resource Management Act 1991, although there was a broadening of the type of waters and range of values...

In this paper we set out the key components of Integrated Coastal Management (ICM) legislation and show how the Resource Management Act 1991 implements ICM in New Zealand. In Part II of this paper we briefly discuss why ICM is needed and the definition of ICM. We then identify the key tools for delivering ICM. Part III outlines three general compon...
Article
Full-text available
Hydrography has its origins in navigational charting, dredging and marine construction, but hydrographic datasets are used for many other applications. This includes surveying of the coastal margins for environmental studies. A single beam and multibeam echo sounding system for use in shallow-water environment studies is described. Charting of surf...
Article
Local economies of marine areas are largely unexplored in mainline journals, perhaps because they have been considered marginal to the land, too underdeveloped, too specialised or of little importance in the local economy. The relatively recent emphasis on marine spatial planning and the development of offshore power generation has drawn attention...

The experience in developing a student-led academic journal, the Lincoln Planning Review, to provide experiential learning that links undergraduates in a small professional planning programme directly to research publication is described. A combination of circumstances, including an impending review of the programme by the external professional bod...
Article
Full-text available
The interface of traditional town planning and the “new” environmental planning is potentially problematic and this is especially apparent in the integrated and sustainable use of water resources in Canterbury. It is easy to find yourself drowning in a flood of watery acronyms and programme names when you engage with water planning issues. This art...
Article
Full-text available
New Zealand has a long-standing statutory policy goal to preserve the natural character of the coastal environment and various freshwater environments and their margins. In the absence of an authoritative definition, it has not been possible to develop a method to measure natural character and its change, nor the outcomes of the long-standing natio...

The Environment Canterbury (Temporary Commissioners and Improved Water Management ) Act 2010 (the ECan Act) has provided some interesting new planning provisions that will exercise the minds of planners, lawyers and, I suspect, the Courts over coming months if not years. The ECan Act was introduced and passed under urgency on 30 March 2010 without...
Article
In a detailed analysis, Small and Nicholls (2003) found that the coastal population is approximately three times the global average and that it is commonly believed that coastal migration is continuing and growing. Lazarow (2007) estimates that 86% of Australians live within 30 minutes of the coast, while in small island nations the entire populati...
Article
Incorporating recreational surfing into coastal management practices is required to protect the seabed features and oceanographic processes that create surfing waves. A review of research-based surfing literature is undertaken to provide a summary of information available to assist in coastal management decision making around surfing breaks. The di...

Survey and Geographic Information System (GIS) data analysis describes the relative influence of biophysical and human variables on site choices made by marine farmers in New Zealand. Community conflicts have grown in importance in determining farm location and different government planning strategies leave distinct signature patterns. Recent legis...
Article
A Geographic Information System (GIS) approach is used here to archive, process, visualise and analyse hydrographic soundings and metadata, including the development of a custom GIS application. The GIS method uses ArcGIS Desktop v9.2 with an ArcSDE geodatabase running on a SQL Server 2005 database management system (DBMS). The client-server comput...
Chapter
Full-text available
New Zealand’s aquacultural development is dominated by marine farming (mariculture), especially shellfish farming. Since 1991, it has developed within the context of world-leading, but substantively different, governance regimes for fisheries and coastal resources. The rapid growth of mussel farming and the associated “race for space” have posed co...

Sustainable development of global marine resources has been the focus of various United Nations' agencies and coastal nations since World War II. As capture fisheries resources have come under pressure and perhaps reached their sustainable limit concern has been expressed over the ability to continue to meet the protein needs of expanding populatio...
Article
"Conflicts between different users of the coastal and marine areas of nations have grown as increased pressures are placed on these environments. Over-exploitation of fisheries and the growth of marine aquaculture are two areas that have become the centre of much concern (FAO 1995, Bailey et al. 1996). These conflicts have led to international acce...

Integrated analyses of New Zealand's coastal and fisheries planning and management are rare. This article reviews coastal and fisheries planning and management in New Zealand from early input-oriented issue-based pre-1980s planning, to integrative planning of the 1980s, and finally to the effects-based planning of the 1990s. Inadequate resource kno...

Article
The importance of fisheries to nations is reflected in the production and employment statistics of the country. It is also reflected in socio-cultural symbols (for instance songs, tales), and in socio-political hegemonies. Just as these may vary from one nation to another, they may also vary from region to region within a nation. Several nations sp...
