Fisheries New Zealand is working with Bay of Plenty (Te Moana-a-Toi) Iwi and Te Ohu Kaimoana Limited to develop a Regional Agreement under the Maori Commercial Aquaculture Claims Settlement Act 2004.
Iwi are interested in the possibility of receiving authorisations to develop aquaculture space within the Bay of Plenty region as part of their settlement package. To assess whether there is suitable aquaculture space requires undertaking due diligence to identify potentially viable new aquaculture space to grow fish, shellfish, and seaweeds to enable all parties to make an informed decision.

This work will expand on a preliminary desktop assessment Bay of Plenty Aquaculture Review (Cawthron Report No. 3260) that identifies several new areas as potentially viable for new aquaculture (attached). These areas are about 3-15km offshore in 30-60m water depth. Some of these areas are close to the now operating 3,800 hectare Eastern Seafarms Ltd mussel site off Ōpōtiki.
