What do I do if I am fishing around seabirds?

August 23, 2018

New Zealand is a special place for seabirds and fishing is a serious threat to the survival of several species.

Seabirds can also be annoying if they get tangled in fishing lines, nets or caught on hooks. Small changes to our fishing can make a big difference to seabird survival.

All fishers can learn new techniques to avoid seabirds and maximise fishing time. Please take a moment to read our seabird smart information on the FishCare website.
