Sealord Group has struck a deal with 36 iwi that represents a major change in how returns from the Māori fisheries settlement are shared.

Operation general manager Doug Paulin says instead of each year competing with other fishing companies to buy annual catch entitlement or ACE, it will get long term use of the deepwater quota held by the iwi.

In exchange the iwi will get 80 percent of the profits from the fish, rather than all the profit going back to the company, which is jointly owned by Māori and Japanese interests.

"What we are able to do is group all that quota on our large fishing vessels so the cost of catch is much smaller than they can do that if they were to catch it themselves, so therefore they get a much higher profit from the sale of that fish," Mr Paulin says.

He says the Ngā Tapuwae o Maui agreement gives iwi the ability to work together collectively, as was the intention of the Māori fisheries settlements.

The agreement will be signed in Auckland this evening on the eve of Te Ohu Kaimoana’s annual conference.

If Jacinda wants to win a second term, she needs to tell us her new 100 day vision
Martyn 'Bomber'Bradbury: Last election, Andrew Little looked at the slumping polls 3 moths out from the 2017 ballot and said, 'I can't lead this Party to victory', and in the most unselfish, most progressive political move in NZ history, stood aside to allow Jacinda Ardern to become leader.
The Maaori Party could spoil Jacinda's dreams for a second term
Martyn 'Bomber' Bradbury: The Māori Party have selected the exceptionally talented Debbie Ngarewa-Packer as their candidate in the very vulnerable seat of Te Tai Hauāuru and it represents the biggest threat to Jacinda's dreams for a second term than any other political challenge.
Why National's beneficiary bashing is really dog whistle politics
Martyn 'Bomber' Bradbury: National has promised a spiteful range of draconian measures against beneficiaries that have nothing whatsoever to do with helping those on the benefit and everything to do with dog whistling to National's reactionary base.
