Don’t forget to register for this year’s Māori Fisheries Conference – Connecting Iwi and Energising Business, at the Novotel Hotel Auckland International Airport on Tuesday 25 March. We’ve finalised a line-up of interesting speakers covering a wide variety of topics that match our theme.  Our list of speakers can be viewed on our website here.

We look forward to welcoming Rob McLeod, Chief Executive and Managing Partner of Ernst & Young’s Oceania region, who is passionate about Māori and iwi development and will deliver this year’s keynote address. Many of you will remember that Rob served as a board member of the Treaty of Waitangi Fisheries Commission that developed the allocation model for the Fisheries Settlement.

Other speakers include the new Chief Executive of Sanford Limited, Volker Kuntzsch, who has recently taken over the role from Eric Barratt, and Rachel Taulelei, who will explore the Business of Authenticity in the seafood industry. Remaining speakers include New Zealand’s Consul General in Los Angeles, Leon Grice, who is busy promoting Kiwi businesses, including seafood products, in the US; Dr Ganesh Nana, a well-known economist from Wellington business, BERL; and Isaac Piper from Cloudy Bay Clams, among others.  

There are now a limited number of rooms available at the hotel, so please book your accommodation early.


Te Ohu Kaimoana and Aotearoa Fisheries Limited will hold their annual general meetings on Wednesday 26 March, also at the Novotel Hotel Auckland International Airport, beginning at 9am. We will report on our activities for the 2013 financial year and present the financial statements. We look forward to seeing you there.
