Notice of Motion - Kylee Matthews - to support Biodiversity in the Hauraki Gulf

 

Resolution number WHK/2020/154

MOVED by Member K Matthews, seconded by Member P Walden:   

That the Waiheke Local Board:

a)         receive the Notice of Motion and note concern with aspects of the findings in             the Hauraki Gulf / Tikapa Moana / Te Moananui-Toi State of the Environment             Report 2020 specifically:[1]

 

i)     the reduction in numbers of snapper, tāmure, terakihi, gemfish, john dory, koura (cray fish), tuangi, kelp forests, taiko, and fairy terns.

 

ii)    the substantial increase in kina barrens, toxic algal blooms, marine levels of nitrogen, mercury and zinc, water pollution, sedimentation, and the increase of marine pests.

 

iii)   the continuation of Bottom Trawling, the use of Danish Seine set where it is illegal in the Hauraki Gulf Marine Park to do so and limited progress in the restoration of shellfish to the Gulf.

 

b)        recommend the Governing Body use their Resource Management Act powers to increase (from the current 0.3%) to at least 30% by 2030 (with staggered targets in between) the proportion of the Hauraki Gulf Marine Park reserve that is protected. As recommended by the Hauraki Gulf Forum Political Reference Group on 25 May 2020[2]

 

c)         support the Hauraki Gulf Forum (HGF) goal of 1,000 sq.km of restored shellfish beds in Tīkapa Moana / Te Moananui-a-Toi.

 

d)        support the Mussel Reef Restoration Trust (MMRT) and Revive Our Gulf’s (ROG) call for a rethink on approaches to biosecurity management in shellfish restoration.

 

e)         encourage Auckland Council to consider the approach tabled/drafted by MPI[3] specific to shellfish restoration projects avoiding the need for site specific biosecurity permits where the key pest species of concern are already present throughout the area and the restoration project is aimed at improving habitats and their resilience.

 

f)          advocate to the Ministry of Primary Industries and law enforcement agencies to adequately enforce regulations by fishery officers[4] by discouraging illegal practices, including taking fish illegally and using Danish Seine sets and trawling where it is illegal to do so in the Hauraki Gulf Marine Park[5].

 

g)        support the stopping of commercial fishing of koura (crayfish) and tāmure (snapper), particularly to counter the formation and spread of kina barrens, noting in 2018 commercial fishers struggled to catch quota and have voluntarily shelved catch.

 

h)        continue support for the implementation and restoration of kelp beds immediately on coastal beds and on rocky shorelines.   

 

i)          urge the Hauraki Gulf Forum and the Auckland Council to act by using it’s RMA[6], Hauraki Gulf Marine Park Act 2000 and other powers to advocate urgently to improve the environmental quality and biodiversity of the Hauraki Gulf by reducing unsustainable practices such as toxic dredging and dumping and increasing spatial and sectoral management.

 

j)          urge the Harbourmaster and Auckland Transport for the speedy removal of harmful debris in the ocean and harbour for example: abandon sinking yachts, abandon cars and tyres, plastic waste – and the development of strategies to reduce the practice and impact of marine dumping.[7]

 

k)         support the work done by Auckland Council for developing the Strategic Approach to Sediment programme and incorporate recommendations from this programme, the State of the Gulf Report and other relevant environmental reports into the Waiheke Area Plan so as to reduce sediment, chemicals and pollution from development, industry and agriculture from flowing into the Hauraki Gulf.

 

l)          resolve to play our part alongside Healthy Waters, Community Facilities, and Auckland Transport (and continue funding local programs) as appropriate to improve the health of waterways and the harbour, more stringent regulations and management, stream and beach clean ups; plantings; park management; natural and engineered systems to reduce sediment, and contaminated storm water flows into the Hauraki Gulf.

 

m)       support the Waiheke Marine Project community initiative for implementation to the Government Response Strategy to Sea Change -Tai Timu Tai Pari Hauraki Gulf Marine Spatial Plan for the future health of the Hauraki Gulf Marine environment.

 

n)        forward these resolutions to the Environment and Climate Change Committee, the Hauraki Gulf Forum, the Governing Body and all Local Boards for their consideration and immediate action.
