Letter to Minister reaffirms iwi position in aquaculture

Bay of Plenty aquaculture developments were discussed openly and at length in a recent meeting between the Ngā Iwi I Te Rohe o Te Waiariki group, Minister for Oceans and Fisheries David Parker, and Under-Secretary to the Minister for Oceans and Fisheries, Rino Tirikatene.

We were extremely encouraged by the Minister’s enthusiasm to work with Waiariki iwi on this kaupapa.

Our extensive mahi has not gone unnoticed and we are seen as playing an important role in developing a sustainable aquaculture and fisheries sector in Aotearoa.

We have agreed on joint focus areas, including options for investment and how we can work more effectively and efficiently.
