Developing pathways to a flourishing blue economy

Recommendations for building pathways towards a blue economy (May 2024)

The seas are central to our wellbeing. Aotearoa New Zealand has a large marine territory, which puts the blue economy at the forefront for economic growth, international opportunities, and New Zealand’s future. Using our marine resources sustainably can help restore and protect the long-term health of the ocean and secure intergenerational prosperity for all.

To achieve this, we need to act now, and we need to shift the way we use our ocean. We need to transition to a blue economy that delivers economic value and contributes positively to social, cultural, and ecological wellbeing.
