New Zealand’s deepwater fisheries are those which predominantly occur in offshore waters beyond the 12 nautical mile limit of the territorial sea. Deepwater fisheries produced over NZ$650 in export earnings in the 2015 calendar year. The management of deepwater fisheries is based on the best available scientific information provided by a comprehensive research plan. The Ministry for Primary Industries (MPI) is seeking to form a panel of capable, independent research providers who can service deepwater research needs. This includes providers with capacity to design and complete abundance surveys and develop fisheries and environmental modelling.
This Request for Proposal (RFP) is to complete a panel refresh to increase the capacity and capability of the Deepwater Research (Deepwater) panel for research providers who are capable of delivering research services in these areas through a sole agency open panel arrangement.
