With blogs by leading experts, live chats, private discussion groups, a searchable and curated literature library, videos, webinars, and more tools to come, OpenChannels aims to be your consistent source for news, guidance, and community discussion.

Our developing understanding of New Zealand ocean energy, minerals and petroleum, ecosystems and biodiversity all suggest that more potential sources of wealth are present in our oceans.
