Tougher time for pier fishing offenders New Zealand

Tougher time for pier fishing offenders – People flouting fishing rules on the New Brighton Pier are in for a tougher time.

Christchurch City Council rangers report problems with people ignoring no-fishing zones, endangering people with overhead casts and littering the area with fish remains and bait.

Parks Team Manager Kay Holder says some fishers need to clean up their act or face being banned from the pier.

She says police become involved when trespass notices need to be issued.
