Not great but very good news from the Minister of Fisheries regarding the Hauraki Gulf/BOP Cray fishery. Huge cuts in take is a big step in the attempt to rebuild a fishery on the verge of collapse. The NZACA is pleased with this result and applaud the Minister for listening. That he did seriously consider a complete closure speaks volumes in itself. This is a solid result for recreational fishers and we appreciate the efforts of our aligned bodies, The NZ Sport Fishing Council and NZ Underwater, for your collaborative efforts in providing another solid submission.
