Local networks, users, mana whenua and other stakeholders from Matakana to Waihi hold a wealth of knowledge on the Hauraki Gulf – and have different ideas on how our marine spaces should be used. Representatives from those networks have been brought together in the Sea Change – Tai Timu Tai Pari Stakeholder Working Group, known as the ‘SWG’. 

The role of the SWG is to take primary responsibility for developing and drafting the Sea Change – Tai Timu Tai Pari plan, by compiling and analysing evidence and working collaboratively to find innovative solutions to complex problems. You can follow their progress month to month and view the scientific presentations used to inform their work. 

Membership of the SWG was finalised in December 2013. The composition of the group was decided by more than 130 people from a range of groups, from industry bodies to conservationists. The mana whenua representatives were selected using a different process.

SWG members come from a wide range of backgrounds and bring a wealth of skills and qualifications to the Sea Change – Tai Timu Tai Pari project. They are:
