The Marlborough Sounds has one fifth of the New Zealand coastline, including sheltered sandy bays, rocky exposed coastal cliffs and coastal wetlands.

It is a unique recreational and commercial waterway with many diverse uses including marine farming, forestry, tourism and transport.

It is rich with both European and Maori history, but is under threat from exploitation as the population increases and imposes greater pressure on finite resources.

A holistic approach is required to meet the diverse needs of all stakeholders to preserve those values that we hold dear for our future generations.
