Crayfishing

These Māori fishermen at Waipiro Bay on the East Coast are rowing out to set their crayfish pot. Traditionally, pots were fashioned from supplejack vines and flax twine into a beehive shape. Baited pots were placed into submerged rocky reefs and retrieved after a couple of hours, usually with a crayfish inside.
