F#%#ing DOC and their underhand tactics!
Surely there must come a time when these people listen. They haven't got a clue and basically couldn't run a bath. you would think the west coast weather would be the best marine reserve. Where next is on the DOC hit list .
You'll be OK for your holiday possum, as the Reserve doesn't come into effect until it has been signed-off by the Governor General and then Gazetted.
Hey dogfish why does the reserve hav that skinny chunk thats not included in it?
I have not had the chance to fish there but am gutted for all the locals and at the thought I never may get the chance to fish it!
There is a 750m strip left out of the reserve for surfcasters.
There is a lot of work that DOC have to do before the reserve goes ahead. So it won't be in place for quite a few months yet, if in fact at all. Kevin Moratti who represents NZRFC is going to petition the Governor General and if that fails the NZRFC will take the decision to the High Court.
