Detail

This builds on previous recreation projects, which focused on gathering spatial evidence of marine recreation at the national, East and South marine plan areas. See MMO1013 and MMO1043.

Previous work highlighted gaps in the knowledge and confidence in the distribution of marine recreational activities.

It was considered that a predictive model would help fill these gaps, and allow the recreation sector to be more fully represented in current marine plan development and marine management generally.

Improvements in source data and ongoing stakeholder validation and engagement must be considered in future iterations of the model, while in the long term actual data of suitable quality will be favoured to predicted data.
