Heres a classic response from seafood NZ replying to an interview
Note how its about fishing southern areas not the Hauraki Gulfand species which recreational do not target.

water water everywhere,how many fish does it hold?

Funny, no mention of collapsed Blue Cod fisheries.No mention of collapsed scallop fisheries. No mention of collapsed Terakihi fisheries. No mention of collapsed crayfish stocks. No mention of a major Snapper fishery that has not even got close to a proper recovery. No mention that they couldn't catch the Hoki TACC in 2016/17 and some of the industry themselves are saying it is being overfished.
Yep we have a fantastic system that 30 years after it's introduction is still allowing major fisheries to be raped to the point where the recovery is a huge long painful road. Of course it is all the fault of those pesky rec fisherman who just get in the way when you want to trawl your nets over some vulnerable sea floor and then have the cheek to take photos of the raft of dead juvenile fish left behind when we haul the net. Don't they realise that I have a new car to pay for.

You are in my wheelhouse there Tagit!

If only every rec fisherman would give $5.00 a week to Legasea.

Times a million that would get us a very powerful lobby group indeed...

It is tough trying to achieve meaningful change in the face of a powerful industry lobby.
The media will pick sound bites and seldom have the patience to hear the full story.  
No doubt industry lobbyists have been complaining about the work of Scott and LegaSea in private meetings for a long time.
Was at the first Fisheries Change Process meeting in Whangarei last night.
Quite a lot of public concern that more change is needed than just the rules around discarding undersized fish.

HaHa John H,no discarding of undersize fish if we all had the same size. Too bad about replacement net costs or cod ends.

Hmm, no mention of the orange roughy debacle either. Maintaining a healthy fishery in their best interests? Yeah right. As long as it doesn't interfere with their week catch targets. take 'em if they are there to take, til they are gone.
No mention of the Gisborne cray size dispensation either (52mm) when they wrecked that too.
