New Zealand - Is there a sustainable future for the aquaculture industry? The government successfully reformed the aquaculture industry, through the Aquaculture Reform Act. This allowed the lifting of a moratorium on new marine farm applications and secured a sustainable future for New Zealand's aquaculture industry. The Act provided the public and industry certainty as to where aquaculture can and cannot take place, with decisions being based on good ecological data, and regard to the effect on fishing and public use considerations.
