NZUA representative on National Rock Lobster Management Group
NZUA board member, Andy Stewart now fills one of two recreational positions as a representative for the NZUA on the National Rock Lobster Management Group.
Many of us in the underwater community are in some way involved or are affected by fisheries and now's our chance to have our say by sharing our thoughts on the Fisheries New Zealand draft plan to improve inshore finfish fisheries.
I have always adored seafood. I’ll eat it in all forms- fish, shellfish, crustaceans, raw, boiled, baked, I don’t care, as long as it gets in my belly. One of the most exciting papers I have taken this semester has been solely focussed on fisheries and aquaculture and I’m thoroughly enjoying the breadth of topics covered. One lecture was spent analysing green-lipped mussel farming in New Zealand.
NZUA would like to notify members of the coming event, The Future Catch Discussion Panel. If you are concerned about declining fish stocks and the impact on recreational fishing, then this is an important event to be aware of and possibly to attend.
