Mike Holmes has been fishing for eels for nearly 40 years.  Today he combines his fishing with his role as chairman for NZ Eel Enhancement Company. Mike’s a champion of the quota management system and sustainable fishing practices.  Mike advocates on behalf of North Island quota holders to assure their livelihood, and for the health of the eel stocks.

John and Mike will provide insight into the state of eel stocks and the eel fishery in the North island, and the issues that they believe are ahead for the fishery.  They will also explore what we might collectively do to further protect and improve the fishery.
