This Friday from 10.30 to 12 pm Ema Gibbs will be talking to David Shearer about the government’s plans to clamp down on recreational fishers in the Snapper 1 area.
Snapper 1 – stretching from Northland and Auckland to Coromandel and Bay of Plenty — is the most popular and important recreational fishing area in the country.
At the moment, the catch limit – if you’re lucky enough to hit a good day – is nine snapper a day measuring 27cm each in length.
But The Ministry of Primary Industries’ three options for the future all require us to catch bigger fish – up to as large as 36cm – and/or reduce our catch to as little as three snapper per day.
Welcome to call us on our 0800 number with your whakaro
There also needs to be much more examination of the commercial by-catch, and the damage they do with their big purse seine nets.
