The Sustainable Seas National Science Challenge work is focused on enhancing the utilisation of New Zealand marine resources within environmental and biological constraints. To achieve this, the Challenge will involve leading experts, including Māori, in researching ecosystem-based management. This will enable researchers to provide decision-makers with up-to-date information about marine ecosystems alongside information about cultural, economic, social and environmental values. The aim is that the New Zealand marine environment is understood, cared for, and used wisely for the benefit of all, now and in the future.
To enhance utlilisation of our marine resources within environmental and biological constraints.
