Tiaki Moana is a condensed hour long presentation that outlines the basics of reef building the New Zealand way. Discover the unique characteristics involved that distinquiish Kiwi Reef Building from its overseas counterpart ‘Artificial Reefs’.
The seabed out from Opotiki is of a firm mud silt composition. Apart from one Waiotahi Rock which rises 4 m off the seabed, no other structure exists on the seabed, until now.
Fish need structure for a variety of reasons – for navigation points, breeding areas, resting areas, feeding, and even being cleaned by smaller rock dwelling fish like spotties.
It is our belief that we humans also need to be giving back to the sea. To date our attitude to the sea has been one of take and more take, with results now becoming more glaringly evident.
TIAKI MOANA covers how we can become givers to the sea, an act designed not just to help break the prevalent take only mentality, but to lay the foundations of what is forseen as sea ranching of the oceans by an evolved mankind. How can we give back to the sea in a direct and meaningful way?
Using reef modules that have been individually crafted and personalised offers a way of achieving this. Even within the short hour long back grounding TIAKI MOANA tour an opportunity exists for you to personalise an item and add it to our community reef.
The day long Reef Building Workshop develops this theme in both theory and practical module building.
