Synthesis of Tasman Bay and Golden Bay Phase 1 research
We are integrating knowledge from our previous research in Tasman and Golden Bays to produce useful tools and resources to carry out EBM.

During Phase I (2014–2019) many of our research projects were focused on the Tasman Bay/Te Tai-o-Aorere and Golden Bay/Mohua areas.
To maximise accessibility and use of this knowledge, we will synthesise this research into tools and resources for future ecosystem-based management (EBM) implementation and action. This project has 2 stages:
- We collated Phase I research, data and findings relevant to the Tasman Bay – Golden Bay area
- We identified the best opportunity for synthesising Phase 1 research to provide the knowledge needed to support EBM in Tasman Bay – Golden Bay.
Stage 2: Proposal is currently under review
- Co-develop the output(s) identified in stage 1
Why Tasman and Golden Bays?
This area includes both coastal and offshore waters, and a variety of marine environments; as well as many different uses, activities and interests - some of which are competing. This diversity is a good basis for developing the tools and knowledge needed for EBM.
