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. We are a part of the Māori Fisheries Settlement and it’s our role 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.
