Coronavirus: Isolated communities want permission to fish

From Morning Report, 8:43 am on 6 April 2020

Whanau who live by the sea and rely on it to put food on the table are urging the government for some leniency on fishing bans during the lockdown.

Isolated communities on Aotea Great Barrier Island are among those backing that call, saying getting food and supplies flown in can take up to a week.
