New rules came into force last year banning the use of recreational set nets in many areas around Aotearoa to further protect our rarest dolphins, the Hector and Māui. Andre Espinoza, MPI's Western North Island regional manager of Fisheries Compliance asks that people check on the website or make contact with MPI to check before you set the net in your area. Espinoza also confirms that drag netting has less risk on the dolphins, which means this form of net fishing has less restrictions. If caught breaking the new rules compliance action may include a fine of $250 or prosecution of up to $20,000.
