This request for tenders details the requirements set out by the Northland Regional Council (NRC) for the selection of a consultant to work with NRC to provide professional services to deliver a hull biofouling and marine pest compliance dive survey throughout the region for 2000 recreational and small commercial vessels. The survey season spans from October to May, to correspond with high vessel movements in Northland.
Vessel hulls will be assessed as to their risk of marine pest transfer and fouling level. This will include a Level of Fouling (LOF) assessment, short questionnaire (when possible) and a compliance check with Northlands Regional Pest and Marine Pathways Management Plan. The on-water presence of contracted staff will span over 8 months, so all major vessel traffic and mooring locations are visited multiple times within the surveillance season.
