Hauraki Gulf Marine Spatial Plan

image of cover page of PlanClick here to read the Plan

The Hauraki Gulf, known by many as Tikapa Moana and by others as Te Moananui ā Toi, is rightly recognised as a national taonga.

Mana whenua, central and local government, local communities and interest groups have all been working together to create Sea Change – Tai Timu Tai Pari, a marine spatial plan designed to safeguard this treasure.

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, then Sea Change – Tai Timu Tai Pari Hauraki Gulf Marine Spatial Plan - affects and involves you.
