We offer a live in marine educational service that leads people through a graduated series of experiences that ultimately lead them to form stronger bonds with our marine world and an empathy for sustainable use of marine resources.
Personally I feel a very strong connection when fishing a reef area that was sponsored and built by my family in memory of our deceased father.
Mostly I would like people to feel a sense of reverence for the oceans and its life within, and thankfulness for all that it provides. From such a point of commonality I believe sustainable solutions for the use of our marine world would follow.
In conjunction with the local regional Council, Environment Bay of Plenty, we pioneered a system whereby groups and local fishermen could build and deploy small effective reefs on otherwise poor ecology seabed. Simultaneously a mind-mapping educational resource was developed to lead to sustainable use of the new fisheries resource created.
