LegaSea newsletter #102 – Rescue Fish in action, in the community

February 4, 2021

As people become more frustrated with the lack of government action to protect our coastal marine environments, more communities are taking action. In the last two months two iwi have enacted rāhui to protect coastal sealife and rebuild abundance.

LegaSea believes these community responses reflects problems with the way that Fisheries New Zealand and the Quota Management System do not serve New Zealanders. As frustrations about the lack of any meaningful official response increases, community action will likely increase.
