Important issues that affect all recreational fishermen.

If we don’t do something about it, snapper limits in Bay of Plenty, Auckland and eastern Northland (Snapper 1 fishery) will be reduced to three per person per day by October this year.

To tell the government we don’t agree with this plan, please, please send your submissions to Inshore Fisheries Management, Ministry for Primary Industries, PO Box 2526, Wellington 6011 or email to FMsubmissions@mpi.govt.nz by 4pm on Friday, August 23.

NZ Fishing World is in the process of organising a public meeting, in conjunction with other fishing media, so that you can air your views. Nathan Guy MP is the minister for primary industries. He’ll make the call.

We’ve invited him to a meeting but his office has, so far, not given us a reply to our invitation. Please post and share this. Together we can stop this ridiculous proposal from becoming law.
