“Despite the best efforts of Government to convince the public their access to Snapper was safe,
this is plainly not the case”, reports New Zealand Recreational Fishing Council president Geoff
“Indications last week they might pull the process have proved to be nothing but spin doctoring.
We have been unable to get any formal response from Government that they will withdraw the
proposals to reduce Snapper bag limits so the battle continues.
Many fishers I have spoken with believe their access is safe but that simply isn’t the case. I
strongly urge public fishers to let the Government know their views before Friday August 23rd.
