Knowledge for customary coastal and kaimoana management

E aku nui, e aku rahi, e ngā matāwaka o ngā tai e whā huri noa i te motu. Tēnei te mihi matakuikui o Taihoro Nukurangi a NIWA ki a koutou katoa e whakarauika mai ki Te Ūpoko-o-te-Ika i runga i tō tātou kaupapa whakaharahara e kiia nei ‘Customary Coastal and Kaimoana Management’. Tōna tikanga ka whakapau kaha tātou kia mōhio ai me pēwhea te anga whakamua, me kī whakaara ake i te kaupapa nei kia tika.

‘Ka pūwaha te tai nei, hoea tahi tātou!’

E aku nui, e aku rahi, e ngā matāwaka o ngā tai e whā huri noa i te motu. Tēnei te mihi matakuikui o Taihoro Nukurangi a NIWA ki a koutou katoa e whakarauika mai ki Te Ūpoko-o-te-Ika i runga i tō tātou kaupapa whakaharahara e kiia nei ‘Customary Coastal and Kaimoana Management’. Tōna tikanga ka whakapau kaha tātou kia mōhio ai me pēwhea te anga whakamua, me kī whakaara ake i te kaupapa nei kia tika. Nō reira tēnā rā koutou katoa.

Increasingly, iwi and managers of taiapure and mātaitai have regulatory responsibilities for customary management of the coastal environment and kaimoana resources. Yet knowledge to undertake such management is not uniformly accessible or useable.

The first day of the workshop will identify the key issues and management regimes from the viewpoint of stakeholder groups, including a keynote address by Sir Tipene O’Regan, and speakers from Ministry of Fisheries, Department of Conservation, Te Ohu Kai Moana, Northland Regional Council, and various Māori groups including Te Rūnanga o Moeraki, Te Rūnanga o Ngāti Awa, Te Ātiawa Manawhenua Ki Te Tau Trust, Mana Whenua Reference Group, and Te Kupenga Forum. The second day will focus on scientific advances, such as habitat mapping and resource assessment, that can underpin customary coastal and kaimoana management. This includes techniques for fisheries enhancement and integrated environmental management. There will also be time for discussion to identify key knowledge gaps.

The workshop provided items of interest to:

  • Iwi coastal managers
  • taiapure and mātaitai managers
  • fisheries managers, resource and environmental planners
  • local, regional, and central government policy managers.
