Do you “Know the Limits”?

Fishing is one of New Zealand’s most popular recreational activities. Every year a large number of finfish, rock lobster and shellfish are taken by recreational fishers, which can seriously affect local fisheries. This means it is important for all fishers to act responsibly and help conserve the resource.

To help conserve our resourses and fish within the law, you need to know the limits.

Maori Fishing Calendar

The Maori Fishing Calendar

Compiled by Bill Hohepa

Some Fish Heads consider this is the mother of all calendars and systems. If it’s new to you you should definitely give it a try. Many years lie behind this calendar. Bill’s website has to set web standard for “minimalistic” (good try Apple) and is also good for Bill’s jokes. Try it out!
