Region - South-East Coast (FMA 3)

The Southeast Region covers the traditional landing places of the Uruaokapuarangi, Arai-te-Uru and Takitimu waka hundreds of years ago. The descendants of these early settlers value being able to provide fish and shellfish to feed whänau (family) and manuhiri (guests).

Species particularly valued by customary fishers in this region include freshwater eels, paua, rock lobster, kina, and cockles.
