"Dear Fishers,
 
 
Two sets of mātaitai bylaws proposed for Lyttelton Harbour – consultation
Tangata Tiaki/Kaitiakai for the Whakaraupō Mātaitai and the Rāpaki Mātaitai have proposed bylaws that would; reduce recreational daily limits for a number of local fish and shellfish species, close two small areas to cockle harvest to allow enhancement to occur, and prohibit taking seaweed except karengo and wakame (Undaria).
The Whakaraupō Mātaitai and the Rāpaki Mātaitai, between them, cover most of Lyttelton Harbour.
The proposals follow surveys conducted by Te Tiaki Mahinga Kai (a customary research and monitoring team based at the University of Otago) which indicates a risk of decline and overharvesting in these mātaitai. The bylaws relate only to recreational fishing as commercial fishing is already prohibited within the mātaitai."
 
Should be more restrictions and closures for other NZ areas.

Yeah and I can't believe we used to think Red Cod was a great feed.

You could have had an Avon river trout instead, or one of the many that lived in farm streams around Leeston.  :-) definitely a muddy taste though.

Red cod and dog fish is all I ever remember!  And that was over 40 years ago!
