Well "Fish" I hope you saw the news tonight as a court judgement has been passed which gives the Hapu/Iwi between Whakatane/opotiki foreshore and seabed rights . Iwi have said they will not stop commercial fishing but will seek a partnership for such activities. Is this the tip of the iceburg?? watch this space.

Oh does go further including fresh water systems.

Here is the Herald article "Fish" interperupt the last sentence how you see fit.But I would suggest 10/20 yrs it will be closed.



The party's other co-leader Rawiri Waititi added that, "All land upon which there is significant traffic by way of fishing and or boating has been found also to be within Māori rights.

Fishing, diving and spearfishing to be banned in Mōtītī Protection Area

A new marine protection area has been confirmed near Mōtītī Island, off the Bay of Plenty coast.

The new blanket ban will mean recreational, commercial, and customary fishers, divers and spearfishers will no longer be allowed to anchor on or take marine life from the three reefs making up the Mōtītī Protection Area.

These are Ōtaiti Astrolabe Reef which was the site of the 2011 Rena oil spill, Motuhaku Island Schooner Rocks and Motunau Plate Island.
