Tell the average Kiwi that they may not be able to eat seafood in the future and we’re guessing they’d scoff at you.

The oceans around New Zealand once brimmed with abundant sea life. The nearly 1 million Kiwis who enjoy recreational fishing could easily surf cast from the beach and be guaranteed at least a kahawai and some mussels off the rocks.
