This 1992 cartoon shows Prime Minister Jim Bolger (left) and a key fisheries settlement negotiator Matiu Rata in a waka (canoe) pulling up Sealord Products. The fishing company, Sealord, was about to be sold, and the government funded a Māori consortium to purchase half of it as part of a settlement of Māori commercial fisheries claims. The fisheries settlement was referred to as the Sealord deal.
