Chapter Summary

New Zealand has concluded a treaty with France regarding the maritime boundary between Tokelau and Wallis and Futuna, and intends to negotiate common maritime boundaries with Fiji and Tonga. New Zealand was settled much later than most other areas in the world, because it is surrounded by sea for thousands of kilometres. The Maritime Archaeological Association of New Zealand (MAANZ) was established in the early 1990s and has been developing methods of preserving artefacts discovered on wrecks. New Zealand does have a tradition of having skilled and dedicated volunteers working in this area. This is reflected in the manner in which many divers work on excavating wrecks. It is also reflected in the activities of MAANZ and the operation of its conservation laboratory.
