Our iwi partners

Port Nicholson Fisheries operates in seven of the nine commercially fished lobster quota management areas defined by New Zealand's Ministry of Primary Industries.  In 2012 the company was acquired by several iwi (traditional Māori social units that now also act as businesses).  Those iwi were Parininihi ki Waitotara (PKW), Iwi Collective Partners (ICP) and Ngati Mutunga o Wharekauri Asset Holding Company.  Recognizing the benefits of collaboration to utilize the country's precious crayfish resource,  more iwi joined as limited partners over the following years.

Port Nicholson Fisheries is now New Zealand's largest iwi-owned exporter of lobster with 18 iwi as limited partners and another 13 iwi as members of ICP.  All net profits generated by Port Nicholson Fisheries are returned to the company's iwi partners enabling them to better help the communities they serve right across Aotearoa.
