Ever dream about fishing at work?

Many of our New Zealand fish stocks have reduced by over 80%. Now is the time to make a change.

What can you do?

  • Make a $250 contribution to LegaSea’s efforts in promoting the rebuild of our inshore fish stocks.
  • Share your support of this vision by proudly using the LegaSea Works logos in your office and business communications.
  • Feel encouraged that your support will help achieve a meaningful fishing experience when the work day ends.

What is LegaSea doing about our diminishing fish stocks?

  • Seeking to stop senseless waste by addressing issues such as banning inshore trawling within the 100m depth contour
  • Highlighting how recreational fishing contributes to our social, cultural and economic wellbeing.
  • Raising public awareness about the issues and providing tools so they can respond.
  • Engaging in effective management and educational processes to help rebuild the fishery to an abundant state of at least 40% of the original unfished biomass.
  • Supporting targeted research to get better outcomes for recreational fishers.
  • Monitoring and responding to commercial and Ministry for Primary Industries management proposals.
  • “Understanding the path to an abundant fishery is LegaSea’s expertise. Supporting them to do that job works for me.”

Embed recreational fishing rights in fisheries management policies

Commission research projects that will provide for better fisheries management decisions.

Distribute educational initiatives to promote conservation, utilisation and sustainable fishing practices.

Fund public communication and collateral to ensure information is readily available to the public in a variety of ways and covering a wide range of issues.

Generate funding support for any legal challenges required to defend public interest in our fisheries.
