Changes In The Regulatory Environment Of New Zealand’s Marine Fisheries 1970 To 2003

This paper evaluates changes in the fisheries regulation environment in New Zealand’s marine fisheries from 1970 to 2003. The quota management system was heralded as the introduction of a market based reform, with a move away from input controls to output controls. The QMS impacted primarily on the commercial sector but also the recreational sector. It was hypothesized (by policy advisors and policy makers) that the QMS would lead to less government intervention and less regulation for the commercial sector. The paper presents findings that suggest the expectations of policy makers may have been misplaced.
