Taupo Fishery

Graham Carter made this Official Information request to Minister of Conservation

Response to this request is long overdue. By law Minister of Conservation should have responded by now (details and exceptions). You can complain to the Ombudsman.

From: Graham Carter

Dear Minister of Conservation,

Why DoC choose not to be proactive in the Taupo fishery?

Why do DoC choose not to delivery changes to a fishery such as those experienced at Lake Pyramid in the USA?

When could DoC relocate Tongariro River trout into the hatchery ponds in an attempt to increase size and condition factor?

At what stage can DoC reintroduce a new strain of trout into the Taupo mix?

How long do anglers and business’ have to sit and watch DoC choosing not to make the fishing experience at Taupo better?

If there are positive changes planed that will make a difference when can we expect those to be put in place?

Do DoC plan just to sit and watch?

Yours faithfully,

Graham Carter
