    I hope you used your vote against it.
    I did and will accept no whingeing whatsoever about 1080 from people who didn't use their vote appropriately.

    IMMEDIATE RELEASE 26th September, 2014

    ANGLERS ADVISED NOT TO EAT TROUT IN 1080 AREAS

    With the fishing season opening in just a few days (1 October 2014), anglers are being warned by the Department of Conservation(DOC) not to eat trout from pristine backcountry waters and their downstream catchments, where the department is conducting 1080 poisoning operations.

    In response to publicly expressed concerns by the New Zealand Federation of Freshwater Anglers, and supported by Fish & Game New Zealand, DOC commissioned research by the independent Cawthron Research Institute on the risks of mice carrying sub-lethal levels of 1080, and which are routinely consumed by trout, becoming a food safety risk for humans.

    Chief executive of Fish & Game New Zealand, Bryce Johnson says “The results indicate that, 1080 levels in trout flesh were significantly in excess of recognised Food Safety guidelines(FSA) for safe human health and DOC is now having to advise anglers not to eat trout caught in 1080 poisoned catchments, until advised otherwise.”

    “Anglers fishing back country waters, including overseas anglers who come here because of the trout fishery’s international reputation, have always been able to assume that it is totally safe to catch a trout and eat it. Sadly, this turns that over and is not a good look for New Zealand’s 100% pure environmental brand.”

    The massive poisoning operation being conducted by DOC, is in response to the anticipated ‘mouse plague’ caused by the cyclic production of beech seeds in native forests, for which this year is a high point.

    “While we understand why DoC is doing this, the findings from this recent research has added a very significant and concerning new dimension to the 1080 debate”, said Mr Johnson.

    Fish & Game also believe the ramifications of this extend well beyond just the poison sites, and Mr Johnson added he was pleased DOC has investigated the anglers concerns, accepted the research findings and has taken the lead in managing the consequences.

    Mr Johnson says that while he realises the timing, so close to the season opening is unfortunate, his organisation has been left with no choice, but to support this advisory from DoC, and adds that “further research, to more closely simulate the natural, wild environment is needed, to provide a more accurate picture of the risks.”

    “Fish and game is not saying don’t go fishing in the back country, just don’t eat the fish.”

    So how long before we start to regularly see the effects of this in humans, It is already happening and will only get worse as the causes are identified.

    It doesn't, it says don't eat them.
    Of course everyone in the country who may eat a trout will be fully aware of this because all outdoors people follow current affairs relentlessly
    So we can all be confident nobody will eat a trout(or eel or koura) by accident that has dangerous levels of 1080 with all the high level publicity

    Care to publish this data Cam? As much as I like you mate there is WAY too much emotion and far to little FACT. I was on the other side of the fence too but this shit has been dumped across NZ for a little while aye. Yet to see a negative, unless you count the rhetoric and anguish and I see far too many supposed hunters using 1080 as a selfish excuse for plainly being a shit hunter. We see plenty of the crap up here too and honestly, the hunting gets better every year.
    Even this thread starts off "1080 KILLING FISH" and yet there is not one dead fish? Standard drama queen anti 1080 attitude?

    Women fall ill after 1080 drop

    Just one example and they didn't even eat any, of course they were immediately discredited by the powers that be as being in the wrong place but their camera logged gps position.'
    This is just what we are hearing now despite the best efforts ( to keep all reporting peachy)of those looking after our(their own) best interests.
    Another 20-30 years and mark my words all sorts of public health issues will be traced back to 1080.

    Just wait till an overseas country we export meat and milk to, tests the product and finds traces of 1080.
    NZ will be stuffed overnight.

    How many trout/salmon/eel/koura fishermen do you think routinely check to see if the catchment has been 1080d? Dunno if you have kids but say you had some young boys going camping recon they would try and catch a feed and eat it?

    Can you find medical practitioners who say they are ill from alien abductions ?

    I can find politician's who claim 1080 poison is no more harmful than a bag of salt and vinegar chips too!
