    A Kaiapoi man has been fined 12-hundred dollars for giving himself a birthday gift of paua, from an area of the Kaikoura coast closed after the 2017 earthquakes

    A Kaiapoi man has been fined 12-hundred dollars for giving himself a birthday gift of paua, from an area of the Kaikoura coast closed after the 2017 earthquakes



    50-year-old Thomas Edwin Cooke pleaded guilty to a charge under the Fisheries Act.

    MPI spokesman Howard Reid says Cooke hid 20 paua in a sack in a culvert, intending to pick them up under the cover of darkness - but fisheries officers found them.

    Reid says huge quantities of the Kaikoura shellfish died after the quakes - and there is no excuse for flouting the rules.
