Fishing and collecting seafood are among New Zealand's most popular recreational activities and important parts of our way of life. A quarter of adult New Zealanders go fishing, whether they're angling for trout, surfcasting at the beach, netting whitebait or fishing from a boat. On today's programme we have roughly divided the subject up into three broad categories of recreational fishing: for trout, inshore saltwater species and offshore big game fish.
