Recreational water use (Kayaking, swimming, diving, etc)

The MMP recognises that activities such as kayaking, swimming, (free) diving and general recreational enjoyment of the ocean are important cultural uses of the marine environment. These activities are vital for people’s health and wellbeing. The MMP will not impact any of these key activities, i.e. nothing will change. See Part 1, section 5 for Threats and Part 1, section 6 for Governance (legislation and policies). Part 2, objective 3.1 summarises the actions that will be taken to insure inclusion of Island culture and traditional activities in management for the next 5 years.
