There are more sharks around in the last couple of years.
Bronzies can be a real pain when fishing for kingfish over summer.
The Mako amd Blue Shark numbers are starting to rebuild.  I think they got a pasting in the early 2000s when there were 150 domestic longliners tripping over each other out there. Just shows that they are slow to come back after getting fished down.
It is time NZ stopped killing large sharks just for a few kg of fins.

It's great to see some of the people on here signing up. We had Kaye from LegaSea give a quick talk about what LegaSea is all about at our Ladies tournament prize giving on Sunday night which was well received.

There is a Public Meeting to launch Legasea in Northland
At Whangarei Deepsea Anglers Club, Tutukaka
On Saturday 31 March at 2:30 pm.
 
Would expect a progresss report  on www.Legasea.co.nz there.
There has been enthusiastic support from alot of people, not a tidal wave as yet, but we can all do a bit to help get the word out. Come and see what it is about and meet some of the team at Tut's.

Been in a while... keep up the good work LegaSea, glad somebody knows where to start! Clap

Only when the last tree has died and the last river has been poisoned and the last fish caught will we realise we can't eat money.

There will be a brief introduction, a video, a bit on the purpose and goals.  All up not too long.
Then there will then be a chance to discuss issues around the stands. Including these and more:
 
ADVOCACY  Why did the Minister increase the NZ commercial catch of southern bluefin tuna by 90% in 2012. What can we do about this ... industry first attidude.
 
RESEARCH  Where is the northern snapper stock assessment at now and what will it mean for you.
 
EDUCATION  Ideas for a best practice guide for handling and storing fish. 
 
working TOGETHER  The latest developments and lessons from the Hokianga Accord.  In the Pacific GreenPeace action to SaveOurTuna.

Hi. Good luck with the cause. Took the kids fishing the other day and thought who is looking after their future fishing interests. Decide to drop a Hundy to the cause which I've just done.

One idea, if you look around at most of the successful not for profit organization they all have 3 things in common ( apart from a good cause). 1:a national week or day used to raise profile, finance and momentum. 2: between 2 or 3 high profile personal as the public face. 3: a national sponsor
Obviously would be great to have 3 in place early on in the piece but a great start would be the first 2. I for one would love to see a national fisho's day. Just a few ideas and I'm sure good ideas are happening in the backgrond

Best of luck
Regards jb

I'm what Willis was talking about

An encouraging turnout today at Tutukaka for the Northland launch of LegaSea.  Interested people from Houhora to Mangawhai.  Plenty of new faces.  About 70-80 people all up. Great to see the President of the Sport Fishing Council Mark Conner, from Ashley in Canterbury.

The question has been asked about number of supporters to date.  The answer as of last week was about 500.  The maths is not as simple as you think, as there are family members and donations, so we can’t just divide a number by $20 or use the number of names on the data base.

Today at Tuts we signed up another 25 people with more saying they sign up on line. www.LegaSea.co.nz. 

We sold about $1500 in shirts, hats and decals. It seems that people will wear the logo with pride. And big ups to the Warkworth Gamefishing Club who donated $500. 

For those that are receptive, the message is getting through.  A little bit contributed by a lot of people makes a big difference. A quarterly report on fisheries management engagement is on its way.

Well done Bob
I hear there was a good turnout to the LegaSea meeting in the Wiakato.
 
Next stop the NZ Softbait Fishing Championship in Coromandel. Good luck with the fishing and the weather.
 
A quick update
- The new Snapper stock assessment gets discussed at a working group meeting in Auckland on monday 30 April.  NIWA have worked hard to run the models requested, but it may take a bit of time to really understand the results.  NZ Sport Fishing is saying that rather than rushing into management changes this year it is better to spend more time testing the results and wait until we get a chance to discuss management objectives.
 
- The Tarakihi stock assessment model was not accepted by the working group.  They tried to combine some east coast North Is and South Island areas and even with some fish allowed to shift areas the model struugled.  Very few adult fish in the trawl catch east of the SI, seems like they are getting a thrashing.
 
- Trying to push for assessement and management of Trevally (North Cape to Runaway) at the Rec forum meetings.  We thought it was a priority but seems to be slipping.  Working group have accepted as possible index of abundance from aerial sightings data from the BOP back to the mid 1980s.  Shows a steady decline.  Could mean a review of management next year.
 
- Also a 2 day meeting in Wellington next week will review all the plenary reports for inshore stocks.
No rest for rec fishing rep.s
A bit of help would be nice.  Click on www.Legasea.co.nz and join up.
 
Catch us at the Boat Show 3rd week of May  Stand #194

I would like to donate so how do I go about doing so.
 
Probably instructions listed here already but if so must have missed them.
 
Also reckon such a worthwhile cause deserves a "Sticky" thread of its' own.
A conclusion is the place where you got tired of thinking.
