East Otago Taiāpure Pāua Surveys 2016
East Otago Taiāpure pāua surveys underway. With help from University of Otago volunteers and Te Tiaki Mahinga Kai (TMK) team members, Te Rūnanga o Ngāi Tahu’s Mahinga Kai monitoring team are currently undertaking pāua surveys within the East Otago Taiāpure (EOT). This will be the third complete survey of pāua in set monitoring sites within the EOT since TMK surveys began in 2008. The information collected from surveys will provide insight into the changes in the pāua fishery over time and will contribute to the ongoing management of pāua within the Taiāpure.
