Abstract or Summary
  • The 1992 fisheries settlement between the New Zealand government and Maori is the largest Treaty settlement to date in New Zealand and is significant internationally for the extent of the transfer of rights to a resource from the state to an indigenous people. In this paper, the challenges presented by the ongoing implementation of the fisheries settlement are assessed on three fronts - the challenges for Maori, the government, and other fisheries stakeholders respectively - particularly in the context of moves to encourage greater stakeholder participation in fisheries management and the promotion of stakeholder driven ‘Fisheries Plans’ as a tool for achieving greater participation. The decade since 1992 has seen a slow but steady implementation of the fisheries settlement on two main fronts - the negotiation and implementation of non-commercial customary fishing regulations, and the less steady path towards the allocation of commercial fisheries assets to iwi (tribes). While progress in both these areas to date has been relatively self-contained, the implications of each for wider fisheries management are large. The integration of Maori customary and commercial fishing rights into the overall fisheries property rights framework will impact on all fisheries stakeholders in the immediate future.
