New Chair of Te Ohu Kai Moana Trustee Limited Appointed

Media release from Te Ohu Kaimoana (Maori Fisheries Trust)

New Chair of Te Ohu Kai Moana Trustee Limited Appointed

Directors of Te Ohu Kai Moana Trustee Limited, the corporate trustee of Te Ohu Kaimoana, the Maori Fisheries Trust, have appointed Mr Matiu Rei, of Wellington, as chairman.

Mr Rei, the Executive Director of Te Runanga o Toa Rangatira, was appointed to the board in May this year through the Iwi Electoral College. He has been involved in Iwi and Maori economic development as well as commercial and customary fisheries throughout his career.

Mr Sonny Tau was reappointed Deputy Chairman.

Te Ohu Kaimoana faces particular challenges in the future, including completing coastline agreements among Mandated Iwi Organisations and encouraging those remaining Iwi that have yet to implement effective governance and management structures to do so in order to receive their full entitlement of the Maori fisheries settlement.

The organisation’s Chief Executive, Mr Peter Douglas, said that the fisheries industry was becoming evermore complex, with impending legislative decisions over marine farming and its affect on fishing activity, the need to better integrate Maori customary fishing with commercial and recreational fishing, and managing the Maori commercial aquaculture settlement.

Mr Rei’s experience at an Iwi and national level in fisheries, as well as wider Maoridom, provides continued strong leadership, as Te Ohu Kaimoana works on behalf of all Iwi and Maori.
