Student & Teacher Resources
As an island nation, many New Zealanders have strong connections with the sea. Whether swimming, surfing, lying on the beach, exploring the rocky shore or fishing, the ocean plays a huge role in our national identity. Commercially, our fisheries earn the country more than $1.3 billion annually – fishing is one of our key primary industries. As well as this, our fisheries are a major source of food, whether as fish and chips on a Friday night, delicious kaimoana on the marae, or a salmon steak on the barbie.
Making sure that our oceans and fisheries are healthy and sustainable into the future is of vital importance to all New Zealanders. This resource aims to teach children why, and the role that they can play in making sure there are fish for the future.
This resource has been designed for teachers of students in years 7 to 10.
