Research projects

BlueWater Marine Research undertake fisheries research projects all around New Zealand, from southern Fiordland to the Wanganella Banks, around half way to Australia! 

Projects that we work closely TOGETHER on include satellite tracking of gamefish, the National tagging database for all recreationally caught fish around New Zealand, recr

eational harvest estimates and the value of recreational fishing. 


Fisheries management

The Quota Management System (QMS) has been effective in rationalising the commercial fleet but employs complex decision-making and consultation processes.  BlueWater Marine Research has considerable experience in fisheries research and management systems in New Zealand. 

These guys are the absolute pro’s for providing us with a sound understanding of the legislative and research requirements needed in New Zealand. 

This level of professionalism, knowledge and experience is extremely useful to provide quality advice on all fisheries and marine issues in New Zealand.  

How lucky can we be?
