Hundreds of snapper are floating in the sea off Auckland, and are washing up dead or dying on beaches off the Hauraki Gulf.

Fisheries New Zealand is warning the public not to eat the fish "for safety reasons".

Local fishers had discovered the dead fish on 23 February and reported to the Ministry for Primary Industries.

Moana New Zealand says one of its contract vessels could be responsible, with the company saying it was accidental, not deliberate.

Whether its accidental or not it should be counted as part of their Quota

Could have been one of their contracted boats? But they know for sure it was an accident. Terrible story

This would only be possible if the vessel could be indentified.

Should be
Could be
Won't be
I suspect the current government will not be at all adverse to upgrading catch and maximise $$$
