Kōrero: Fishing industry



This fisherman is hauling in a catch of snapper, caught by Danish seining in the Hauraki Gulf off Auckland, about 1940. A large net is used to encircle schooling fish, drawn tight, and winched towards the boat. The technique was introduced to the Hauraki Gulf by two Faroe Islanders, Jack and Andy Andreason, in the early 1920s.
