  • The inaccessibility and invisibility of many social values need to be considered in marine management.
  • These complexities highlight the need to carefully assess the role of societal and indigenous values within EBM.
  • A framework (He Waka Taurua) for considering Indigenous values and broader societal values in a balanced way is proposed.
  • He Waka Taurua provides an equitable solution moving forward with co-management in the marine space.
  • Our framework provides a process for how diverse worldviews can come together for achieving a common purpose.
