Raukawa ki Te Tonga Trust is the kaitiaki of the Raukawa ki te Tonga fisheries settlement assets.

Raukawa ki te Tonga Trust (the Trust).
The Trust was established in 2010 by Iwi members as the Mandated Iwi Organisation (MIO), under the Māori Fisheries Act 2004 (the Act), for Raukawa ki te Tonga in respect of fisheries matters.
Our fisheries assets were received in a settlement with the Crown of the Ngāti Raukawa commercial fisheries claim. Those assets were transferred to the Trust in 2010 by Te Ohu Kaimoana (TOKM) - the body responsible for allocation. Read more
