Resource consent means time to mussel up
Auckland Council has approved a 35-year resource consent for mussel reef restoration work in the Hauraki Gulf/Tīkapa Moana.
Peter Miles from the Mussel Reef Restoration Trust says it means mussel restoration practitioners won’t need to apply for individual consents for each and every restoration site.
In the past, the trust has worked with Ngāti Manuhiri to restore mussel beds in Mahurangi, and Ngāti Whātua Ōrākei on Okahu Bay.
