Accord Hui Report

Hokianga Accord Report

April Hui 2010

"More fish in the water"

"Kia maha atu nga ika ki roto i te wai"

Some of the participants at the Hokianga Accord hui, Oturei Marae, Kaipara. April 2010

In a bid to extend the knowledge of people who do not attend the various Hokianga Accord hui the mid north iwi fisheries forum develops reports on its events. These reports are comprehensive documents detailing the in-depth discussions.

To make these reports more accessible the Accord has split the report into separate sections. We trust this will make the whole document, and most importantly the topics, easier to digest and understand.

Further public awareness initiatives are developed prior to and after each hui. In addition the forum contributes regular columns to fishing magazines and other publications. Up to this April 2010 hui the Accord had 31 monthly Updates published in the New Zealand Fishing News magazine.

Over the past five years the Hokianga Accord has worked with an alliance of various organisations and individuals to achieve "more fish in the water".
