SBN backs a rahui on shellfish take around Waiheke Island

By Andy Kenworthy

SBN has sent a letter of support for a proposed iwi-led rahui banning the take of paua, kūtai (mussels), kōura (crayfish)) and tīpa (scallop) around the entire coastline of Waiheke for at least two years. We think it's a vital first step in giving  the seas around Aotearoa a chance to regenerate, and for the precious sea life to recover.
