This bill seeks to implement recommendations from Te Ohu Kai Moana, following an independent review of the Act and consultation with iwi. The bill aims to give iwi a greater degree of rangatiratanga over their assets, improve benefits to all Māori, reduce costs, and improve efficiency.


  • iwi organisations and their asset-holding companies would take more direct control of Te Ohu Kai Moana and Aotearoa Fisheries Limited
  • the entities would change governance arrangements to make them consistent with each other and with standard corporate governance practice
  • Aotearoa Fisheries Limited voting shares would be cancelled and their income shares would be converted to ordinary shares
  • Te Ohu Kaimoana would allocate ordinary shares to mandated iwi organisations
  • the process for trading settlement quota assets and ordinary shares would be simplified

The Māori Affairs Select Committee looks forward to hearing from you.

Make a submission on the bill by 11.59pm on 13 April 2023.
