We are pleased to announce the following Phase II research project leaders.
We are reviewing the Sustainable Seas website and would love your feedback.
With the first phase of Sustainable Seas research coming to a close it is time to say farewell and thank you to Carolyn Lundquist (Our Seas), James Whetu (Vision Mātauranga) and Janet Stephenson (Enabling EBM) who are stepping back from their programme leader roles.
We are delighted to welcome Beth Tupara-Katene as the leader for Tangaroa.
Our coasts are at the ‘end of the pipe’ for discharge from local rivers and streams, so seawater quality is sometimes compromised by bacteria from land-based activities. This can affect the revenue of shellfish growing areas and close local beaches to public use.
35 people joined researchers Nick Lewis and Jason Mika bright and early at the NZ Maritime Museum for our inaugural breakfast talk to explore what a ‘blue' economy is, and how Aotearoa can best develop one while protecting the taonga of our marine environment.
Interested in our planned research for Phase II (2019–2024)? Find out more at this ‘town hall’ style short session with Julie Hall (Director) and Judi Hewitt (Theme Leader - Addressing risk and uncertainty).
We want to hear from people who work with, or for, marine-based Māori enterprises, particularly those involved in commercial, customary or recreational fishing.
