TEMPORARY CLOSURE OF WAIMĀRAMA
From 23 December 2020 to 22 December 2022, there is a ban on collecting blackfoot pāua from the coastline to the north and south of Waimarama. This includes the area around Te Motu o Kura / Bare Island. This ban supports the rāhui, put in place by Ngāi Hapū o Waimārama.
CLOSURE OF KAIKŌURA COASTLINE
The three-month gathering season for pāua in Kaikōura has now ended. As of Monday 28 February 2022, pāua gathering on the Kaikōura coastline is no longer permitted. The closure extends from Marfells beach, around Cape Campbell and south to the Conway River. This is to help manage the health of the earthquake-struck fishery.
