Trevally traffic

Schools of feeding trevally once covered acres of the Hauraki Gulf, so plentiful was the krill and so abundant the fish.

Today, however, schools of trevally may be ‘only’ 30 metres across, and concentrated in parts of the gulf that remain relatively intact.

Here at Simpson Rock, there is no protection, and the moment we finished filming this sequence, two fishing boats pounced on the school.
