Stuff recently reported on the Fishing News article ‘ Building bridges'.
Herb Spannagl talks about his experience as a recreational fisher with commercial fishermen.
He mentions our very own Executive Committee member Keith Mawson recognising Keith'stireless efforts in bringing together the commercial, recreational and Maori fishers to discuss the areas of concern affecting them and the good deeds that Egmont Seafoods do with the general public.
He also mentions that both recreational and commercial fishermen are here to stay and there is room for a better relationship.
Herb's article is a more accurate and positive spin on the relationship between the recreational fisher and the commercial fisherman and one that should be publicised more regularly!
