Global wildstock fisheries are in decline while demand for protein is growing. It is prudent for Ngā Iwi i Te Rohe o Te Waiariki and indeed all Māori to critically investigate alternative ways to supply kaimoana for whānau and for valuable world food markets. We are exploring sustainable, resilient aquaculture opportunities – how we can do this together, care for our moana and importantly, grow our whānau!
