The Conservation Service Programme (CSP) has operated, under the administration of DOC, since 1996 with the ultimate aim of avoiding, remedying or mitigating the adverse effects of commercial fisheries on protected species.

The Conservation Services Programme Annual Plans include the conservation services to be delivered as the CSP for any given year, and subject to cost recovery from the commercial fishing industry. As such, each Annual Plan forms the basis for levying the commercial fishing industry under the Fisheries Act 1996 for that year.

For a summary of the legal basis of levied work described in this Annual Plan, refer to the Conservation Services Programme Strategic Statement.
