Second meeting of Fisheries Liaison Group – draft minutes available

The Fisheries Liaison Group, a group of commercial and recreational fishers, divers and Napier Port representatives, met for the second time on Thursday 28 March 2019.

Led by Independent Chair Eileen von Dadelszen, the group was established following the approval of Napier Port’s resource consents to build a new wharf and carry out further dredging and disposal so more and larger ships can berth at Napier Port as the region grows.

One of the group’s first tasks is to provide input into three management plans Napier Port is producing to ensure it has strong plans and effective monitoring in place to protect the water quality and ensure the fishing stock is not impacted as a result of disposal and dredging.
