​To protect our coastlines, the four northern-most regions of New Zealand - Northland, Auckland, Waikato and Bay of Plenty Toi Moana - are considering new marine biosecurity rules, with support from Biosecurity New Zealand.

The proposal would be to develop hull-fouling rules that are applied consistently across the four regions.
