Keep the daily bag limit of nine snapper for recreational fishers

The Government is gutting the snapper fishery - daily catch limit could soon be as few as two snapper. Let’s put a stop to this madness.

It's vital we ensure recreational fishers have continued access to the snapper fishery and to reject the Government’s plans to alter the daily bag limit of nine fish.


A more viable option would be to leave the maximum catch alone, extend the minimum size to 30cm, increase minimum mesh sizes, focus on dumping, and properly enforce regulations including those applying to foreign fishing vessels in New Zealand waters.
