Te Ohu Kaimoana is proud to announce that this year’s Māori Fisheries Conference will take place on Wednesday 27 March 2019, at the Novotel Hotel Auckland International Airport.

Thanks to the backing and support of our sponsors, the Māori Fisheries Conference is launching into its eighth consecutive year and has become the pre-eminent hui in fisheries for Iwi and Māori fishing interests. The theme for the 2019 conference is ‘Te hā o Tangaroa kia ora ai tāua’ – the breath of Tangaroa sustains us.
