Kutai (Mussel) Restoration Project in the Hauraki Gulf

Peter was raised in Tamaki Makarau and now resides in Wellington. He has a Master of Science (Marine Science) degree (focused on restoration of Kutai to the Hauraki Gulf) from the University of Auckland. He was the Project Manager of a November 2017 restoration project which saw 50 tonnes of mussels reseeded to the Mahurangi Harbour and surrounding areas. The long-term aim of this project is to restore kutai to the seafloor, healthy ecosystems and natural biodiversity of marine life. Peter is employed as a Policy Analyst at Te Ohu Kaimoana.
