As part of the current public consultation on options for both the Southern Scallop fishery (SCA7) and the Snapper 7 fishery, local people are invited to have their say at a series of drop-in sessions.
MPI fisheries management staff will be running sessions on:
- Thursday 23 June in Blenheim
- Monday 27 June in Nelson
- Tuesday 28 June in Motueka

The sessions are a chance to explain what the options are for these 2 fisheries that ensure the long-term sustainability and access for all.
Dave Turner, MPI director of fisheries management said: “These are both important fisheries and MPI is committed to actively engaging with a wide range of stakeholders to ensure that all views are considered.”
