WASTE NOT, WANT NOT
FILLETING FISH TO FEED WHĀNAU

The Outboard Boating Club of Auckland, Papatūānuku Kōkiri Marae and Westhaven Marina have teamed up with LegaSea and the NZ Sport Fishing Council to develop The Kai Ika Project.

The Kai Ika Project utilises fish heads, frames and offal which were previously going to waste. Since September 2016 previously discarded fish parts have been collected from the OBC by Papatūānuku Kōkiri Marae whanau and redistributed to families and community groups in South Auckland who value these fish parts and enjoy their sweet flesh.


Keen to help?

Papatūānuku Kōkiri Marae needs volunteers to help in the gardens and to distribute kai moana.

Our Mission


Our mission is to minimise our impact on the marine environment through better utilisation of our natural resources. We encourage giving respect to each and every fish harvested and ensure no part of the fish is wasted.

When we strip everything back to the bare necessity food insecurity is an environmental issue.

We aim to connect New Zealanders and encourage collaboration with outside communities through the appreciation of all parts of kai moana. We hope to adjust people’s perceptions that fish heads are actually a revered food source.
