In March 2000,New Zealand began the development of a national oceans policy. The oceans policy has weathered a numberofchallenges,most notably the dispute between Maori and the Crown over title to coastal land and water.This dispute stalled the development process in mid 2003 until work recommenced in November 2005.This paper analyses developments in New Zealand oceans governance,identifying the interaction between state,community and marketas important influences that can help explain complexities of policy development,lack of sectoral integration and a changein policy direction.
