Ngati Mutunga, Ngati Tama, Te Ati Awa & Taranaki Tuturu
Some of you may know Jamie Tuuta from his time as a political reporter for Maori Television, but he has many more strings to his bow.
Recently appointed to the board of Te Ohu Kaimoana to replace departing directors, Jamie (Ngati Mutunga, Ngati Tama, Te Ati Awa, Taranaki Tuturu) also serves as the Maori Trustee, is a self-employed business consultant, adviser and a company director.
Passionate about investment and innovative businesses, among Jamie’s goals are increasing the capability of, as well as improving the economic and environmental performance in, Aotearoa’s primary industries, especially the Maori fisheries sector. Jamie’s primary sector experience in agribusiness, fishing, Maori development and investment means he brings a lot to the table of Te Ohu Kaimoana.
Jamie has developed strong networks across a variety of industries as a result of his consulting and governance background, and understands that New Zealand is dependent on sound relationships with overseas companies to improve the overall economic performance.
The Ministry for Primary Industries (MPI) has released details of its operational review of the Fisheries Act 1996. The review, which was announced last year by the Minister, Hon Nathan Guy, was aimed at improving the framework under which New Zealand’s fisheries are managed.
