This modern rāhui (ban) restricts the taking of pipi and cockles in an area on the eastern coast of the Coromandel Peninsula. It was imposed after an agreement between the Hauraki Māori Trust Board and the Ministry of Fisheries. Traditionally Māori placed rāhui on the taking of shellfish to allow the beds to recover.
