Golden Bay has the best scallop beds in New Zealand & a growing mussel industry. The scallops are fished by towing dredges along the seabed with both recreational & commercial fishers enjoying a bountiful harvest.
The Challenger Scallop Enhancement Company is a privately owned fishing company that gathers scallop spat on artificial collectors (spat are tiny infant shellfish) which are released onto the shellfish beds.
It helps everyone and our natural resources when we follow the rules. New Zealand conserves its fishing species and there are penalties for abusing these. More information can be found from the Ministry for Primary Industries here
