NRC inviting yachties to their Office in Water street Whangarei


Recommended Posts

Frankly I am not surprised but incredibly disappointed that the people who administer these policies appear to have absolutely no idea about boating, it also brings into question who wrote and approved them.

It seems that there is absolute need for a representative from a NZ wide yachting organisation to get involved on behalf of owners, if only such an organisation existed? I would happily pay an annual fee as part of our club dues to make that happen.

Ok boys n girls now we have a problem. If a sea snake is protected as it arrived under its own steam,does that now mean Fan worm/asian paddle crab/invasive wedd at Gt Barrier protected??

It’s not really an invasive species though ?  No more than yellow/bluefin tuna , mahi mahi , sunfish , wahoo and the odd tiger shark that come down on the warm currents .

 

the other buggers you have mentioned are “invasive” and more than likely hitched a lift in ballast water and on hulls

We will look forward to seeing you at 11am on Wed 16 November. If you are new to using Zoom, we recommend that you log in earlier to make sure your systems are working, and if it's difficult to use on your computer, it can be better on a phone or tablet.

No. They didn't get here under their own steam.  Their larva hitched a ride in water ballast or attached to a cruisers hull.

fair enough, now no vessel can leave the viaduct without permission. But you leave Westhaven with fan worm and cruise the gulf except northland. So why not put in place same rules? OH that's right they cant due to Westhaven pontoons being infested with the worm and great cost to eradicate.

Just catching up with this but don’t see why Northland Councils are so pissy about this

We cleared into Marsden Cove about a month ago and there’s fan worm on the pontoons there

The stable door is open, horse bolted and a spark from its shoe set the whole farmyard alight.

A female Fanworm produces 10,000 spawn, at least once and sometimes twice per year. If you start with one female and 0.1% of the offspring survive, then in 6 years you have 1 million adult fanworms. 

I.E. if you want to stop them you can not let one survive. Good luck with that.

There is little actual understanding (by the Regional councils) of the reality (impossibility) of what they are trying to do. I have just read about a yellow sea squirt that is apparently now in Stewart island, they realise that it can't be eliminated, but wish to "slow" its spread. "Yeah right"

What's the problem with fanworm anyway?  Is it the Mussel Farms that they destroy?  If so, good.

 

 

Whats wrong with mussel farms??They filter up to 350lt a day per mussel. Provide a haven for fish.The mussel industry are providing,maybe a cheap rate for mussels to be dumped around the gulf to help revive the gulf.
