Help prevent the spread of Undaria

Boaties visiting Fiordland should be aware of restrictions in Breaksea Sound to prevent further spread of the marine pest Undaria.

Environment Southland has declared a Controlled Area for Breaksea Sound. This doesn’t prevent access to the area, but there are restrictions for mooring duration, movement of equipment and anchoring.
