Each year, Te Ohu Kaimoana commissions an independent short survey as an opportunity for iwi to provide feedback on how you think we are doing.

Like previous years, we’ve brought on board AK Research (previously known as UMR research) to run this kaupapa.

If you are a representative of one of our Mandated Iwi Organisations (MIO), Regional Iwi Organisations (RIO), or Asset Holding Companies (AHC) we represent, your whakaaro, guidance, and participation are essential to us as a kāhui in providing a better service for iwi.

While we value the kanohi ki te kanohi feedback we receive, this independent survey provides an opportunity for you to share your whakaaro anonymously on a set of measures that we track each year.

This means we can find out what’s working well, what isn’t, and how we can better represent iwi in the fisheries space.

Statistics drawn from this data will then be published in our upcoming Annual Report which is made available for you to view on our website.

From Wednesday, 29 September onwards, AK Research will send representatives from each organisation an individual link to participate in this year’s survey online. If you did not receive this email, please get in touch with us at ika@teohu.maori.nz so we can chase this up.

The survey will only take around 10-12 minutes to complete, and you can be rest assured, all of your responses will remain confidential, and findings are reported in a way that ensures individual comments are anonymous.

Your contact details will be supplied to AK Research for use with this kaupapa only, and they will not be used, passed on, or sold by the company for any other purpose.

The survey will be open for responses until October 29th, however, we do encourage you to respond to this at your earliest convenience.
