Who will have a say?

All iwi (through their MIOs and RIOs) and Representative Māori Organisations named in the Māori Fisheries Act, as well as Te Kawai Taumata members and the four entities, will have an opportunity for input into the Terms of Reference.  These groups then have 20 working days to comment in writing to the Committee of Representatives. 

It is presumed that the Committee of Representatives will ensure that MIOs, RIOs and the RMOs (amongst others) will also be able to provide their views during the review process. 

Once the findings of the review have been made available to relevant parties, sometime after mid 2015, Te Ohu Kaimoana will hold a general meeting where the findings can be discussed and debated – see the timeline provided for indicative dates.
