A new way to fish, that uses innovative nets and a mobile app, to track how fish are caught and where they come from.

3:10 Masterpieces - David Downs

Today on the show, David Downs will be looking at his favourite lesser-known NZ inventions.  How a tobacco company kept the world fit; why Ernest Rutherford is the SECOND most famous person from the small town of Brightwater, Nelson; how a kiwi stopped people yelling at sport matches; and how a kiwi vet revolutionised health across the world. And, rather sadly, David will highlight little known kiwi heroes of invention that reached recognition on the world stage but not here in their home country.
