Better waste and fishing practices could have a massive impact on the global economy, according to a United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) report.
New Zealand’s own Stabicraft Marine has just delivered nine custom boats to Alaska, where they'll be used to monitor gillnetting by commercial fishermen and the number of fish and birds caught.
As a coastal country, New Zealand obviously has a lot of scope when it comes to marine energy generation. Now a fresh bout of funding from the government’s Marine Energy Deployment Fund is set to give three marine energy projects a bolster. The projects include a wave energy device for Stewart Island, turbines to generate electricity for Parnell Baths in Auckland, and funding for a cable to link a wave energy device at Moa Point in Wellington.
