    Abstract This publication reports on ecological restoration and
    biodiversity protection issues in the Porirua Stream
    catchment. It focuses restoration recommendations on
    public land, but within the framework of integrated
    catchment management some issues are discussed with
    reference to both public and private land.

    The report assists in facilitating the management of the
    catchment across city council boundaries by identifying
    priorities and issues for all groups and organisations
    involved. It focuses on the following: identifying and providing
    a broad-scale ecological and landscape description of the
    catchment; identifying broad-scale priority areas for: community
    engagement and support; riparian planting and restoration;
    weed control; and protection mechanisms.

    Issues addressed are: key pressures on the stream health
    (eg erosion, stormwater contamination, sedimentation); and
    restoration of fish passage.
