    Two pipi poachers are likely to be heading for court

    Two pipi poachers are likely to be heading for court


    Two men face charges after being caught with more than three thousand-500 pipi from the Ohiwa Harbour, in the Bay of Plenty.

    Ministry for Primary Industries spokesman, Richard Ratapu, says fisheries were shocked to find the illegal take during a routine inspection.

    He says the men have shown a complete disregard for the daily legal recreational allowance - of 150 a person.

    He says they have given no thought to the sustainability of pipi stocks.

    The shellfish were seized and returned immediately to the sea.
