Nau mai haere mai – Welcome to the website of the Takutai Trust.
The Takutai Trust was established to assist Maori in regard to the aquaculture settlement and has a key role in administering the Maori Commercial Aquaculture Claims Settlement Act 2004. The Takutai Trust works hard to protect the aquaculture interests of Maori and is responsible for receiving aquaculture settlement assets from the Crown or regional councils, and transfers these assets to Iwi Aquaculture Organisations.
In 2010 the Takutai Trust assisted the Te Tau Ihu Iwi, Hauraki and Ngai Tahu in successfully completing their pre-commencement space settlements with the Crown that resulted in a $97 Million Deed of settlement. Takutai Trust has since helped other iwi to achieve similar ‘pre-commencement space settlements’ and is currently working with iwi in Te Taitokerau, Hauraki, Bay of Plenty and the South Island to complete their ‘new space’ settlements.
