A proposal for a marine reserve just north of Waiheke Island has received huge public support, Stuff reveals. The Hākaimangō-Matiatia Marine Reserve submission proposed a 2350ha area be used to reduce stress on an area “severely impacted” by over-fishing and pollution. The aim for the reserve is that snapper, crayfish, marine mammals and hundreds of other species will thrive there.
