Abstract or Summary
  • This paper will address the effectiveness of fisheries co-management between the Ministry of Fisheries and Te Arawa a central north island indigenous tribe of Aotearoa/New Zealand. The Ministry of Fisheries, as the manager of fisheries resources, must provide a balance between the interests of all New Zealanders and the rights of the indigenous people of Aotearoa/NZ, Maori, as provided under the Treaty of Waitangi 1840. As a case study this paper will examine the working relationship between the Ministry of Fisheries and Te Arawa that demonstrates when tools are provided either through legislation or kaitiakitanga (traditional and customary management practices) this allows for effective fisheries co-management to occur. The key issues for the case study are: " settlement of Te Arawa's historical Treaty of Waitangi claim for their lakes " promulgation of the Te Arawa Lakes Fisheries regulations " Providing mechanisms for Maori to have input and participation into fisheries management; " Ability for Maori to manage customary non-commercial harvest in their tribal area; " Commitment to a strong working relationship as partners; and " Provision of resources to enhance capacity for Maori to participate in fisheries management. This paper will also look at the process Te Arawa undertook to have the lakebeds returned, how legislative frameworks and policies are assisting Te Arawa to develop fisheries management. Addressing implementation of a co-management process for Te Arawa's taonga (treasured) species within the 14 lakes and how this has added value to relationship building for both partners.
