Ominous warnings about the health of the Hauraki Gulf are laid out in a new report which finds fisheries in peril, and polluted waterways choked with sediment build up. The State of the Gulf 2020 report has comprehensively looked at the state of the Hauraki Gulf Marine Park - which is 20 years old today - and found that there is very little to celebrate. Kathryn speaks with Raewyn Peart from the Environmental Defence Society, Professor Simon Thrush Director of the University of Auckland's Institute of Marine Science and Andrew Jeffs, Auckland University marine scientist who has been working in the Gulf for 25 years.
