Maybe you’ve noticed how things have changed over the years, the decrease of fish and shellfish, the declining health of our coastlines and waterways… and maybe you’ve wondered, what will fishing be like in the future?
We have heard these concerns raised time and time again, not just from recreational fishers, but from all New Zealanders, including tangata whenua, environmentalists and families. These concerns are supported by research.
Most Kiwis want to invest in conserving our fisheries and enhancing our fishing experience, for now and the future. If we want our children and grandchildren to have similar or better fishing than we have today, planning for abundance needs to start now.
