PLANNING MAUI NATIONAL MAORI FISHERIES INNOVATION 100 YEARS FORWARD & K2 KIWI KIDS ADVANCE TO FINAL IN LONDON 2012
One of the interesting challenges for leadership, is fisheries and oceans management planning. This is becoming increasingly more linked to marine surveillance protection planning for the future, as the world’s population expands.
How will Maori fare in fisheries for the next 100 years in the future? That was the big question posed at the Maui National Maori Fisheries Conference. Currently Maori own around 40% quota in fisheries. Peter Douglas offers his thoughts in Te Reo Rangatira (The Language of Chiefs) of New Zealand.
We will need drones, boats for marine surveillance in the planning of fisheries and fish oil, production plans. We will need to invest a certain % of fisheries and fish oil products revenue into an R&D science fund, to help clean up the oceans. If every nation did this too, we’d all be winning for the mokopuna and their fish needs. We will need to move forward into bio-pharmaceuticals, using fish properties more wisely for a higher return on investment. The health arena is a vast area for fisheries to advance in.
Big Pharma, has caused people to live on edge. What is needed is healthy nutritionally based fish products, then this will have the effect of boosting, yet not speeding up the world. Instead, creating a more sustainable society. Canada and the USA and Britain (some of the highest pill chompers) could perhaps trial the first batch of products? When they can’t do without the goodness of these products, Maori will make mega billions, if money is important to Maori at all. A science lab is what needs to happen, that more utilizes the building blocks of fish and marine life dna blueprints. Bring in some creative scientists from overseas, have them work alongside Kiwi scientists and see what they come up with.
Due to global warming, famine in some parts of the world, civil war in some nations too – NZ’s population will quadruple rapidly, before we can say hoki bites at McDonalds anyone for 20 million people? Therefore, we need to earn more to build such an expanding society quicker, as we have more infrastructure to build, kids to feed and mokopuna on the way to think about providing for. It is Maori who will also be involved in protecting the EEZ territory waters and our borders, in partnership with other New Zealand citizens. We’ll have to protect the kids having fun, within NZ while ensuring safety with crew based off our coasts. All that kind of stuff to think about. Fonterra is movng more into pharmaceuticals. Maori Fish should more move down the bio-pharmaceuticals path perhaps. When both Fonterra and Maori Fish build up in these areas, then – the companies could merge some products in a third company that is 50/50 owned by both companies. That would rock too.
So, we need to think like we are, just expand the thinking four-fold in scale. See what happens when we do.
