Fisheries New Zealand seeks feedback on the proposal by Ngāti Wakarara – Ngāti Hau Takutai Kaitiaki Trust for 2 temporary closures, one at Tangoiro/Waihirere and the other at Motuoroi, both north of Gisborne. Both requested closures would prohibit the take of finfish and shellfish, including crustaceans and rock lobster, for 2 years.
