Day #4: Swimming with the Sharks : Activity 3

Bonus Activity: Hector’s dolphins are a very special native animal found only in New Zealand. They are the smallest dolphin in the world measuring 1.5 metres long and they are quite rare. Sadly, many Hector’s dolphins are killed every year when they get caught in large fishing nets and can’t escape. Some people have argued that fishermen shouldn’t be allowed to fish in Farewell Spit in order to protect the dolphins living there. What do you think? On your blog, tell us whether you think that fishing in Farewell Spit should be banned (stopped).

Yes, fishing there should be banned, they know that that area is confined and a really alluring place for most sea life to go there!! Fishermen should be aware about their surroundings and care for the sea life which lay in those areas, especially if they are rare! So I would say, put an end to fishing in the Farewell Spit. I have many logic's, to support my statement, above! Including the population would be decreasing, there will be peace, (well no quite, but a little) between both argument sides and this is another definition of Animal Cruelty, expect in different concepts!

Is is very sad that these lovely creatures are being killed by big commercial fishing nets. The problem is a big one too and one that has been on the news many times. There is a lot of wasted sea life caught in those nets. The companies should be held accountable. Who would hold them accountable though?

Hi Aaliyahna,

Thank you for sharing your summary about the Farewell spit. It's sad to hear and see our sea creatures get hurt from our fisherman. I'm so happy to see you share your own personal opinion. I hope you learnt some new interesting facts about the Hector dolphins Aaliyahna. Keep up the good work.

Best wishes,

Hi Aaliyahna
I agree with you - fishing at Farewell spit should be banned. I think that it is important to look after our precious native creatures, as the Hector's dolphins are only found in New Zealand waters. Well done.
