Ahumoana Ahutāngata, Aquaculture Development in New Zealand: Scientific and Technical Information to Inform Māori

Aquaculture has the potential to meet the increasing demand from local and overseas markets for seafood. A range of reasons can be given for why Māori might get involved in aquaculture. These include investment opportunities, providing kai for customary purposes, creating employment, doing research or even making money, but, whatever the reason it is essential for those involved to have a realistic vision of how to move from an aquaculture concept to a commercial aquaculture enterprise.

This document discusses the potential for aquaculture development in New Zealand and for Māori to participate in the industry. The document contains regional and species reports.
