SAVE THE HAURAKI GULF - BAN BOTTOM TRAWLING
The Hauraki Gulf is in crisis. A century of degradation, from bottom trawling has pushed this unique place to the brink, and now many of its precious species are in a tailspin towards extinction.
To turn things around, we’ve got to protect the whole area from bottom trawl fishing methods, and allow this unique marine ecosystem to recover.
Now is the time to tell the Minister of oceans and fisheries, Shane Jones, that to save the Gulf we need bottom trawl methods banned from within the Marine Park, so that ocean species can recover and thrive again.
