Then visit www.hekorowaitrust.co.nz Fishers land in hot water Fishery officers will deal harshly with anyone they catch taking fish above legal limits this summer. That is the Fisheries Ministry s warning after officers and Kaeo Police found two men at Te Ngaere with 269 kina, 124 fish, 22 rock lobster, undersized paua and two illegal fishing nets earlier this month. The kina limit is 50 a day per person, while the daily rock lobster limit is six per person. The limit for paua is 10 a day per person and they must measure at least 125 millimetres across the widest part of the shell. Officers seized the men s fishing boat and a four-wheel-drive vehicle and will charge them with serious breaches of the Fisheries Act. The men will lose the boat and vehicle if they are convicted and face penalties of up to $250,000 in fines. One of the men could also be banned from fish- ing for three years. The ministry s field operations manager Darren Edwards says offending on this scale undermines efforts to maintain a sustainable fishery. People like these men couldn t care less about thatandit suptous-- fishery officers support- ed by responsible members of the public -- to make sure they don t get away with this sort of pilfering.

Police move house By RICHARD EDMONDSON Powhiri: Rudolph Hohepa, whose tribal affiliations are Te Uri O Tai and Te Rarawa of Pawarenga, as well as Ngati Pakahi and Ngati Kahu of Whangaroa, was one of several kaumatua who spoke at the opening.

IT MAY no longer have New Zealand s oldest police sta- tion, but Russell can enjoy the benefits of a purpose-built station that is more visible, accessible and better-de- signed for modern police work. A $250,000 station that deputy police commissioner Rob Pope opened on York St last week includes a public waiting area, meeting room, processing area and holding cell. The facilities at the 60-square-metre, single- storey station are a big improvement on those at the former police station nearby which was part of sole con- stable Mark Caswell s 140-year-old home. Mr Pope told about 50 people, including a dozen uniformed officers, at a powhiri that the new police station would make it easier for police to build part- nerships with the people of Russell. A big strength of the New Zealand Police is that we police with the consent of the community. We can t be effective with- out the community s sup- port. He regretted that alcohol and violence remained big policing challenges 170 years after the country s first police station was set up in Russell. In those days, Russell was a lawless whaling and trad- ing port called Kororareka, which became known as the hellhole of the Pacific. Police spokeswoman Sarah Kennett says the new police stations in Russell and Kerikeri represent the biggest investment in poli- cing infrastructure in the Far North in years.
