Request for Expression of Interest from Young, Development NMOW Divers

Ngati Mutunga O Wharekauri Asset Holding Company Limited (AHC)

AHC is a wholly owned subsidiary of the Ngati Mutunga O Wharekauri Iwi Trust (NMOW) and charged with managing the commercial interests of the Iwi


AHC supports 24 NMOW fishers and divers from its small quota base which results in limited volumes being allocated to each and a current inability to bring on additional fishers/divers, particularly for crayfish, blue cod and paua. 

In order to provide a development opportunity, a 10mt parcel of Kina (SUR4) ACE has been specifically set aside for a young NMOW diver. Note – there is no current capacity to add any paua ACE to the parcel at this time.

AHC is offering the opportunity for young NMOW development divers to submit an expression of interest for the SUR4 parcel. It is expected that those expressing interest will have previous diving experience working on other boats but are relative new entrants in terms of running, operating and skippering their own vessels.

Expressions of interest are to be submitted to Jo Clark at the NMOW Iwi Trust Office and should include:
  • History of relevant diving experience 
  • Annual catchplan (ie – ACE species and volumes secured from other sources for the fishing year) 
  • Copies of relevant diving and vessel management qualifications 
  • Vessel details including copy of the Fishing Vessel Registration
  • Copy of Fishing Permit
  • Any other relevant details, eg – participation on fishery stakeholder groups, contribution to NMOW, etc.

Expressions of Interest Close Friday 11th October 2013
