Ngai Tai keen to extend cockle rahui

1 min read

(Source | Waatea News) South Auckland iwi Ngai Tai wants to continue a ban on taking cockles from Maraetai for at least another two years.

Spokesman James Brown says the rahui means stocks of the shellfish in the Firth of Thames are starting to recover.

But he says the iwi wants more time to be sure, and may consider seasonal rather than full opening.
