Whitebaiting rules may change

The country’s whitebaiting rules are set to change in an effort to save the four species currently threatened or at risk of extinction.…

Minister of Conservation Eugenie Sage. … said there were no plans to introduce a licensing system for recreational fishers or a ban on the commercial sale of whitebait within New Zealand.

But the changes do recommend phasing out the export of whitebait.

Consultation and public meetings will be held through until 2 March and final decisions will be made later this year.
