Māori frustrated by freshwater report process

From Midday Report, 12:44 pm on 16 April 2020

Our Freshwater 2020, released today, finds more than three-quarters of Aotearoa's freshwater fish are threatened or at risk of extinction and says climate change is set to make things worse.

Te Wai Māori Trust is statutorily mandated to advance the interests of Maori in freshwater fisheries under the Maori Fisheries Act.

Its chair, Lisa Te Heuheu, speaks to Māni Dunlop.
