Year-round shellfish ban begins at Auckland

4th May 2021 By Staff Reporter | | @foodtickernz

The gathering shellfish is no longer permitted at east Auckland’s Cockle Bay/Tuwakamana beach.

A full year-round closure from 1 May of the recreational harvesting of shellfish replaces the previous seasonal restriction, said Fisheries New Zealand.

The recreational harvesting of any intertidal shellfish, including cockles, green-lipped mussels, oysters, crabs, limpets, starfish, periwinkles, whelks, barnacles, and snails is banned under the move, but would be reviewed after three years.
