Hauraki Gulf Marine Spatial Plan

The Hauraki Gulf / Tikapa Moana, known also as Te Moananui-ā-Toi, is rightly recognised as a national taonga.

A partnership led by mana whenua and central and local government is working on creating Sea Change – Tai Timu Tai Pari, a marine spatial plan designed to safeguard this treasure.

Sea Change – Tai Timu Tai Pari needs another key partner: you. Your ideas, visions and goals for the Hauraki Gulf – all 1.2 million ocean hectares of it – are vital if we’re to secure a healthy, productive and sustainable resource for all users.

If you use the Hauraki Gulf for any purpose – such as leisure or sport, aquaculture, commercial or recreational fishing, shipping or tourism – or if you are simply interested in maintaining its wellbeing, you are warmly invited to participate in the development of the Sea Change – Tai Timu Tai Pari Hauraki Gulf Marine Spatial Plan. Learn more about the project on this site.
