The tool is being used by the Gisborne District Council, Iwi and Rūnanga from Te Tairawhiti.  Ian’s inspiration for developing the Mauri Compass comes from his father, the late Bill Ruru, and their work together teaching aquaculture and customary fishing qualifications through workshops at 300 Marae.
