A Coromandel group fighting for a ban on scallops welcomes two-year-old Rahoi, but fears it could add to the pressure.
A two-year break from commercial scallop pruning on the Coromandel coast is a half-victory for the group trying to protect the camouflage, as there are fears it could put pressure on the rest of the scallop fish.
Spitto Bay, Kautono and Vitianga have since demanded Rohoi for commercial scalp pruning. Ngāti Hei applied for a ban in March..
His fish was awarded last week when Ocean and Fisheries Minister David Parker announced that the East Coromandel Scalp Fishery would be closed for two years from this week.
Legisia spokesman Sam Wolford said the ban would give Coromandel’s Mawana “a lot of comfort”, but others in the Horaki Bay area were preparing for a full-scale massacre next season.

Ito Gourmet Bay is a special place, with a significant drop in scallop numbers, and a voluntary ban on scallops to protect resources for future generations.
The Eastern Coromandel Scalp Fishing closed on Saturday, September 11, after receiving more than 2,000 applications.
The enclosure covers scallop fishing along the east Coromandel coast from Anarke Point to Rohihui Point, where Ngti practices Mana Mawana.
“We’re excited after months of months of community groups fighting for this two-year-old roulette ban in the minister’s coromandel, but we also know that our victory comes at a price,” Wolford said.
Now out of coromandel action, Wolford said some of New Zealand’s last fisheries have “alarm bells already ringing” – in areas such as Ohaha, the Great Barrier and Little Barrier.
At the national level, only two commercial scallop fisheries are open in the country. that’s it.
“Tasman Bay, Marlborough Sound and Capara are all closed. They have Bram Bay and Horaki Bay.
There has been no simultaneous reduction in the commercial catch range, although the area available for fishing is now about 2,500 km shorter due to the closure.
MPI data has been released to Legacy under the Official Information Act. Equipment The Eastern Coromandel has seen 888 dredging incidents in the L2 region from July 15, 2019 to December 21, 2020 – making it the most dredged area in Horaki Bay.
During the same period, Little Barrier Island had 641 dredging events on one side and 612 on the other.
He said that if the dredging in the Coromandel was shifted to the rest of the Horki Bay, it would wipe out the area.
Ngāti Hei kaumātua Joe Davis says there are also fears that areas that are not currently trolled could be targeted.
“We are very happy with the news of the two-year-old Rahui. Surprisingly, it happened so soon, but we are also conscious of making a lot of changes for the other Ivy.
“It has always been in my mind that the coromandel cap would be like squeezing a balloon – this pressure will go out somewhere.”
He encourages neighbor Ivy to change her mawana, as Coromandel did, until national change occurs.
“Our problems in Mawana are a collective concern.
No matter how much salad the government wears, trolling is a major issue here. We need to move away from these ancient systems.
