Like you ITM wants to see a sustainable future for fishing in New Zealand. ITM has supported Matt Watson and the ITM Fishing Show for over 10 years and his passion for fishing has rubbed off.
Matt is an Ambassador for LegaSea and has always been committed to sustainable fishing practices - avoiding waste and utilising catch and release methods wherever possible. This can be seen in practice at the ITM Fishing Competition event which is all based on fish measurements - not fish weights - with an emphasis on taking photos of your catch before releasing it.
We want to help LegaSea get their important message out there and seen by as many people as possible. There are a number of programmes that they are currently working on which we think you will be interested in.
With elections just around the corner LegaSea has sent these principles to all of the political parties to comment on.

Thousands of kiwi fishers dump their unwanted fish heads and fish frames – thousands of kiwi’s would love to eat fresh fish heads and frames.
So this service is to put the two groups together, reduce waste and conserve fish.
It’s simple click on either the “I Have” or “I Want” buttons to receive or donate fish heads.

BUILDING LEGASEA is the construction industry working with LegaSea to empower the public of New Zealand to have a voice and stand up for their right to have a meaningful fishing experience.
Building LegaSea offers a common commitment, for construction industry leaders, to support LegaSea’s work in defending the interests of the New Zealand public right to a meaningful fishing experience.
By being part of Building LegaSea you will add funding support and networking power to a belief that we can achieve a public friendly fisheries management system.
A system that will protect and conserve our fisheries for our people, our communities and for future generations.
Fishing is imbedded into the social and cultural framework of the construction industry. It’s part of your lifestyle.
If we have a fishery needing to be rebuilt let’s talk to the people who know how to take on big building projects. Hands on Kiwis whose best mates work together and fish together.
It is going to be a team effort in the same way any project is built.
The success of Building LegaSea comes from construction industry entities uniting as one and each making an affordable monthly contribution to ensure this vital aspect of our Kiwi way of life is looked after and retained for our kids and their kids to enjoy.
Together we can preserve the total New Zealand fishing experience. To be generous. To share our catch. To celebrate the value and experiences fishing provides. To pass on our knowledge and skills to others. To respect our fish.
