Nau mai haere mai, welcome to Takutai Trust – the Māori Commercial Aquaculture Settlement Trust.

The Trust was established under the Maori Commercial Aquaculture Claims Settlement Act 2004 to support Iwi in relation to the aquaculture settlement. Here you will find out everything you need to know about our organisation and the work we do.
