    Save our Tarakihi

    Have a read or a watch and sign the petition.
    The Minister needs to know that more than commercial fishers matter.

    Pretty thin in our waters these days. Used to get onto them and it would be two at a time for a few hours. Saturday we got 3 over about 4 hours.

    Yeah the old bottom nets smash the structures to bits and they take ages to bounce back. We used to have about 12 really good Terakihi spots, guaranteed a good catch every time. Don't think we even have one reliable spot anymore

    Welly/the straight still seems to fish well for them and the southern west coast, I was on a charter a couple of weeks ago around top of durvil/stephens and despite 6-8 lines in the water with 2 baits each pretty much all the time not one Tarakihi was landed!!!!

    While the link I posted is not very specific I believe the petition is for areas TAR1 and TAR2
