Working together to restore our coastal fisheries

LegaSea is a not for profit organisation. Our mission is to restore our coastal fisheries. In 2012 LegaSea was established by the New Zealand Sport Fishing Council to elevate public awareness of the issues that affect recreational fishers and inspire people to support us. This support funds advocacy, alignment, research and education.
