  • Native fish in Northland: application of the River Values Assessment System (RiVAS and RiVAS+)

    Hughey, Kenneth F. D.; Goodwin, Eric; Burkepile, Nathan; Glover, Natalie; Griffin, Bruce; Hawkins, Keith; Jones, Kim; McGlynn, Mike; Nicholson, Carol; Poynter, Mark

    Book
    Lincoln University

    The fourth application of the River Values Assessment System (RiVAS and RiVAS+) for native fisheries value was made in the Northland region. Data for nine out of ten indicators were provided from modelling undertaken by Cawthron Institute using a variety of databases including the NZFFD and FENZ. The expert panel then checked the modelling results and adjusted where appropriate based on local knowledge, and it populated the Population Stronghold indicator. Of 27 river catchment/clusters evaluated, nine were considered of national significance, namely the Bay of Islands North, Bay of Islands South, East Coast, Herekino, Hokianga, Mangamuka, Waihou, Waipoua and Wairoa. The Wairoa scored very poorly for all attributes other than presence of many at risk species. The remaining 18 are of regional significance. No river catchment/clusters were identified as being of local significance. The RIVAS+ identified work that can be done to reduce the inference on migratory fish movements caused by a barrier on the Waipoua River.

  • Visitors’ and locals’ views of environmental management in Christchurch, New Zealand

    Fairweather, J. R.; Maslin, C.; Swaffield, S. R.; Simmons, D. G.

    Book
    Lincoln University

    The objective of the research presented in this report was to develop an understanding of visitors' and locals' views of environmental management in Christchurch. A total of 63 people were selected in a diverse, non-random sample with roughly equal proportions of men and women, and including 21 overseas visitors, 33 domestic visitors and 22 local people. Each subject sorted a pre selected set of structured photographs into nine piles, ranging from those that represented good environmental management to those that represented poor environmental management, to create their own Q sort. All Q sorts were factor analysed to identify three factors or views on environmental management. Subjects' attitudes, beliefs and expectations in making their selections were recorded in interviews and provide an additional basis for interpreting the three different factors. The themes distinctive to the factors, and the themes that are common to the factors, are discussed to develop some theoretical implications. Finally, a number of implications for policy are considered, in particular the need to retain a breadth of approaches to environmental management.

  • The values associated with Maori-centred tourism in Canterbury

    Zygadlo, F. K.; McIntosh, A. J.; Matunga, H. P.; Fairweather, J. R.; Simmons, D. G.

    Book
    Lincoln University

    The overall aim of this study was to analyse Maori tourism development in the Canterbury region according to values of Maori-centred tourism. The objectives to achieve this aim were to validate the relevance of the values of Maori-centred tourism to Maori tourism business practices in Canterbury and to identify the strategies for achieving Maori-centred tourism business ethics in Canterbury. A Kaupapa Maori research approach was used to achieve the objectives. This approach was seen appropriate given the need for a culturally relevant perspective. This included employing Maori values derived from a Maori epistemology as measures to analyse Maori tourism development.

  • Enhancing financial and economic yield in tourism: public sector: local government and regional yield report

    Butcher, G.; Lennox, J.; Becken, S.; Simmons, D. G.

    Book
    Lincoln University

    The programme “Enhancing Financial and Economic Yield in Tourism” has included a range of investigations into various dimensions of private sector yield of tourism businesses, as well as public sector yield of tourism at local and national levels. In this report the focus is on yield from a regional perspective. Yield in this report is understood as net financial or economic benefit. For the private sector, the measure of yield used is Economic Value Added, while for local government the measure of yield is the difference between costs and revenue. Local government yield related to tourism can best be interpreted within the context of regional total value added from tourism. While local government may have a negative yield for its own tourism-related business, it judges this to be worthwhile from the community perspective because of the commercial benefits to the community as evidenced by total value added and employment In this report the focus is on regional yield in Christchurch City, and Rotorua District, from the perspective of both the private sector and local government. We show private sector yield as Economic Value Added (EVA), which is the relevant measure for private investors, as well as the more common national accounting measure of total value added and total employment. We have estimated the private sector commercial yield on the basis of surveys of visitor expenditure and analysis of private sector financial yield ratios by sector, and the net costs and benefits to the local government sector on the basis of an analysis of local government revenue and spending.
