This research aims to empower Ngapuhi to better manage, protect and enhance their eel fishery and has been coordinated in partnership with Te Runanga o Whangaroa, Ngāti Hine and others to begin the process of understanding the spatial distribution, abundance and growth of tuna in Te Tai Tokerau. The information gained will assist Ngapuhi to develop their commercial and customary management strategies for eels.
