Kaikōura pāua fishery to reopen

The Minister for Oceans and Fisheries announced that Kaikōura’s pāua fishery, which has been closed since the November 2016 earthquakes disrupted local seabeds, is to reopen following a community-led rebuild. 

The fishery will initially reopen for three months from the 1st  of December and be closely monitored.
