About Wai Māori
Wai Māori is keen to fully utilise the Wai Māori website as an effective tool to communicate with iwi Māori. To aid in this, the website will host current articles and publications as they relate to freshwater and freshwater fisheries as well as links to relevant Māori Fisheries Organisations.
This website is also an opportunity for iwi Māori to communicate with Wai Māori and the wider Te Ohu Group on issues and opportunities as they relate to the freshwater environment.
To advance Māori interests in freshwater fisheries through:
- Undertaking or funding research, development and education;
- Promoting the protection and enhancement of freshwater fisheries habitat;
- Promoting the establishment of freshwater fisheries;
- and Using resources to bring direct and indirect benefits to Māori in respect of their freshwater fisheries interests
