Looks like we've had another one recaptured. Going by the tag number, I tagged a snapper during last years Grunter Hunter. More details to come.

On the 11/6/23 I caught a snapper measuring 30cm in the Manukau harbour in 4m, tag number T20955. It was recaptured 256 days later 21/2/24 in the Manukau harbour measuring 38cm, 2km from the original capture location.
This makes it our 5th recapture.

That's pretty cool! It grew a cm per month in the harbour and didn't have to go to far either. Nice work!

Far out, it's well known that snaps grow faster west side than they do east side... almost seems unusual in a short amount of time from 30-38cm
A very healthy fishery west side

One of the first recaptures we got was from Tauranga harbour, it had grown from 28cm to 39cm in 12.5 months. Recapture was also close by within the harbour. Obviously both harbours have a very good food supply.
