Self-quarantine measures required for The Gut Hut
Secretary Island is currently rodent free and self-quarantine measures are required. Your boat can have some uninvited mice and rats on it that we do not want on land in that area.
- Check – your gear for pests such as rodents and insects
- Clean – footwear and gear, removing soil and seeds
- Close – ensure your gear is zipped up (no open bags)
Requirements for taking a vessel into Fiordland Marine Area
The Fiordland Marine Pathway Plan protects the area from marine pests which can be carried in on boats. It sets out rules and standards that must be met by all vessels entering within one nautical mile of the landward boundary of the Fiordland Marine Area.
If you take a vessel into Fiordland from outside the area you must:
- apply for a Clean Vessel Pass, and
- ensure that hulls are clean of marine pest species.
The plan is an Environment Southland regulation. DOC has no authority below mean high tide except in marine reserves or concerning marine mammals – we do not enforce any fishing regulations.
