2. marine reserve rules - no fishing of any kind and no removal of anything - completely no take
3. cover off some safety information- such as snorkelling with a dive buddy (staying close at all times and being alert to any hazards for example )

Support the Rahui roll over in the Bay Of Islands

Please join EMR  in supporting the hugely successful Ngati Kuta and Patukeha led environmental protection of Maunganui Bay (Deep Water Cove).
The existing rahui has protected marine life in Maunganui Bay since 2010. However, it is due to expire on 29 October 2018. The hapu's request to Fisheries NZ (MPI) will extend the existing rahui for a further 2 years. EMR has snorkelled in this Rahui and it is awesome and we would love to see the protection continued
