Indigenous Land and Sea Corporation support Indigenous Fisheries Delegation to NZ

The purpose of Indigenous delegation is for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander proponents and future proponents of cultural and commercial fisheries projects to gain an understanding of how Māori groups have developed and commercialised their sea rights.  The Indigenous Land and Sea Corporation fully supported the Indigenous delegation, including Narungga Nation Aboriginal Corporation representative, Cyril Kartinyeri to attend the to attend the Maori Fisheries Conference and Annual General Meeting in Auckland New Zealand.


The Australian Parliament passed a law in November last year changing the Indigenous Land Corporation into the Indigenous Land and Sea Corporation (ILSC). The change means that the ILSC is now in a position to support water-based projects with Indigenous groups, including the purchase of commercial fishing licences or allocations in water markets.  


With this change comes new opportunities for Indigenous people and organisations to partner with the ILSC on projects that build on their interests in water in order to deliver cultural, economic, social or environmental benefits. There are a range of groups already working with the ILSC on sea and water based activities, but we’re still very early in our ‘sea’ journey and there’s a lot to learn.
 

Cyril added "my attendance to this trip gave me a good insight into a fully established fisheries collective, it showed me their perspective on what can be achieved when everyone is working together".
