ABSTRACT
The article provides information about prohibited seabed trawling in almost one-third of New Zealand's ocean territory that was discussed at a 20-nation fisheries conference in Wellington. The meeting was conducted with a purpose of finding ways to manage international waters of the South pacific. Furthermore, the country has set seabed zones as 'Benthic Protection Areas' where major fishing companies are restricted. The conference featured environmental groups including Greenpeace, World Wildlife Fund and New Zealand Fisheries.
