Support the rahui rollover!

rahui rolloverPlease join us in supporting the hugely successful Ngati Kuta and Patukeha led environmental protection of Maunganui Bay (Deep Water Cove).

The existing rahui has protected marine life in Maunganui Bay since 2010. However, it is due to expire on 29 October 2018. The hapu's request to Fisheries NZ (MPI) will extend the existing rahui for a further 2 years.

This tiny 1.6 km2 is the only no-take (except kina) area in the Bay of Islands. Within it fish can relax, grow big, get old, provide heaps of offspring into the surrounding waters, and develop a thriving marine community - restoring the mauri of our moana. This Rahui covers just 0.5% of Bay of Islands waters, which means 99.5% is still reserved for people who want to fish.

Fish Forever is delighted that hapu are continuing their initiative to protect this wonderful corner of the Bay.
