Last week the Labour Government proposed a ban on two types of fishing methods, bottom trawling and Danish seining, from being used in 80% of the hauraki gulf.

This is a big difference from the current 27% ban.

Rawan spoke to Minister for Oceans and Fisheries Rachel Brooking about this proposal.

They discussed what the current issues during these measures are and why the ban is important. We also talked about how the ban will be enforced and what assessments are in place for the future.
