On your blog, tell us whether you think that fishing in Farewell Spit should be banned (stopped).
I agree that fishing in Farewell spit should be banned. Look at all those poor old Hector's Dolphins who suffer out there. Some people have Set fishing Nets that they set above the surface of the water. Set Net fishing acts as a majorly bad influence to the Hector's Dolphin. Like all marine mammals, they need to come to the surface regularly to breathe, but if they become tangled in set nets, they will have to hold their breath until they suffocate. There are also other things that are a threat to these dolphins. Because they are so close inshore, they are at risk of being injured or harmed by boats. Newborn babies are particularly vulnerable as they swim relatively slowly, close to the surface. Some have been killed by boat propellers when unwary boaties run them over.
Hector's dolphins only have a life time maximum of up to 20 years, and some are less fortunate because of what happens to them. I think fishing on Farewell spit should be stopped, for once, and for all!

Hi Jazire!

I totally agree with you, life is short enough already, they should be able to enjoy it without being caught, cutting their life short!
