MĀORI FISHERIES REVIEW:
REPORT TO THE MINISTER FOR PRIMARY INDUSTRIES
Te Ohu Kaimoana has delivered its report on the Māori Fisheries Review to the Minister for Primary Industries. As a result of the review, which was required by the Māori Fisheries Act 2004, iwi have resolved to make significant changes to the way their centrally held fisheries settlement entities will be governed. Te Ohu Kaimoana is required to request the Minister to promote any legislative changes that are necessary to implement the decisions iwi have made.
A copy of our report to the Minister can be downloaded from the link below, along with each Appendix.
The report outlines the basis of the review, the resolutions that iwi have made, and the extensive engagement process that has been carried out with iwi to decide how their decisions should be implemented. The report also includes the implementation plan for the resolutions, identifying the changes that will require legislative amendment, and an overview of the Māori Fisheries Act, identifying where amendments will need to be made.
Te Ohu will deliver an amended version of the full Māori Fisheries Act to the Minister in December 2016.
