Yum! West Coast Whitebait Season starts today, September 1st. Just look at how much bait this gentleman has to sort!
This picture was taken at the Nolan Brothers Whitebait Canning Factory in Okuru, South Westland which was established in 1928 and regularly freighted whitebait to Christchurch and further afield until it closed in 1952. Ref: Te Ara
Nowadays, whitebait are in decline, mostly due to the degradation of their habitat. However, there is still enough for a delicious whitebait pattie with a dash of lemon juice, mmm! And if you fancy catching your own supper, here are the regulations: DOC Whitebait Regulations

in particular laptops, cellphones, wallets and backpacks. Unattended belongings attract thieves, and while many believe the risk to be small, it is real and such a loss can be devastating. Even for short trips to the copier, printer, or toilets, take them with you or have a friend sitting next to you watch them while you're gone. The library is not responsible for the loss of personal belongings.
