Recently our crew spotted a couple of Pahu calves in Te Waewae. What a great way to kick off 2019!
Check out how shallow the water is where the Pahu are playing. This is concerning as commercial trawlers have no restrictions when using low headline trawl gear and can work very close to shore. This is why our NZ Dolphins are so vulnerable to any type of gill nets and trawling. Best practice recommended by scientists and local and International bodies is no commercial fishing in Pahu and Maui habitats within the 100m depth contour.
