Far North iwi creating fishery pathways for rangatahi in South Island

The fisheries sector in Te Waipounamu (South Island) has a number of career opportunities for both rangatahi (young people) and those with more experience. Two Far North iwi have travelled to Te Waipounamu (South Island) to help establish employment pathways for rangatahi (youth) in the fisheries sector. An iwi delegation comprising Whangaroa and Te Aupōuri members was busy touring Nelson and Motueka last week, exploring opportunities for mahi (work) in both deep-sea fishing and shore-based factory processing. Sealord and Talley’s hosted the group, who were shown around each of the company’s different facilities, including Talley’s Motueka accommodation for shore-based northern workers and a deep-sea fishing school at Westport. Te Aupōuri commercial manager Penetaui Kleskovic said feedback from the sector was there was dire a shortage of workers for New Zealand’s deep-sea fishing fleets. >click to read< 16:22
