EXECUTIVE SUMMARY
This latest project in the Ōhau Loop (‘the Loop’), has focused on inanga (whitebait) habitat knowledge and restoration, and was built on an existing research relationship between Taiao Raukawa, Manaaki Taha Moana (MTM) project Horowhenua research team and Cawthron Institute (Cawthron). This relationship was forged through the successes of the Manaaki Taha Moana (MTM): Enhancing Coastal Ecosystems for Iwi/Hapū project.
