Welcome to Te Wai Māori
the Māori Freshwater Fisheries Trust

Te Wai Māori was established under the Maori Fisheries Act 2004 to advance Māori interests in freshwater fisheries. Protecting Māori interests in freshwater fisheries ultimately means protecting habitat to ensure quality water and abundant species. Freshwater fisheries include species, habitat, surrounding land, water column, water quality and quantity. We are a product of the Deed of Settlement (Māori Fisheries Settlement) 1992 and an entity of Te Ohu Kai Moana Group
