    It's been an issue up here for a few years now and on our only decent trout fishery, Kai Iwi Lakes. Some amateurish research from a PhD student was taken to prove that trout reduce the number of galaxids. Fishing was going to be stopped (actually, I don't think they can do that), then the lakes weren't going to be restocked which is effectively the same thing, then it was back on with stocking, then we don't know again. I really wish we could get our shit together on indigenous vs. game fish/animals. As an aside, I have fished those lakes regularly for five years and not once I have seen anybody whitebaiting. So what is the issue?

    Buerocracy gone mad. For fuck sake just leave shit alone, you can't unbreak an egg and you certainly can't unbeat the bugger. We are known the world over for our wonderful trout fishing and hunting. They generate the pursuit of outdoors activities that we are so fond of and which defines us as a nation and let's not forget tourism which adds to our GDP so why are we so hell bent on fucking it up in a vain and glorious attemp to save flora and fauna that 99 percent of kiwis wouldn't even know exist?
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    Because we have a radical greeny in power who thinks she can do as she pleases and bugger what anybody else thinks.

    First the cows and anti cockies, then the tahr, now the fish....what next. Good to see they've opened the door for another 500 immigrants(non-natives).

    Wasting all this money doing it. How about putting it into medical research and try to find a cure for cancer,bolstering the education,nursing....budgets. Something that actually benefits the whole country

    To be fair those lakes are a closed system, so a balance does need to be monitored there

    To return NZ to its original pristine state we need to get rid of the worst pest of all - Humans. I suggest we start with the politicians. No need for culling, they could simply be humanely exported somewhere else. Besides, there is no chance of creating an export meat market for them, because once you empty all the crap out of them there's nothing left.

    Want to save the whitebait?
    Make it illegal to sell it on. Everyman and his dog now has a huge pool of potential online sales via FB etc. , so the days of a few roadside stalls or selling to the locals is well and truly gone.

    Sage and her extremist mates are on a rampage. Does anyone wonder why the rest of our wonderful members of parliament aren't screaming blue murder??? Gutless useless bastards.

    @Pengy

    Not right to restrict people too much. Maybe just stipulate each whitebait has to be gutted at an approved facility before sale to the public, just like any other fish.

    Disagree too many people raping and pillaging the streams and river mouths to make a quick buck.
