Disposal of fish carcasses

Fish carcasses should not be disposed of on or near jetties, wharves, boat ramps and beaches as they can cause nasty injuries if trodden on and lead to poor water quality. If you're filleting fish it's a good idea to take the carcasses away and dispose of them appropriately.

www.freefishheads.co.nz is a free service to connect those with fish heads to those who'd like fish heads. This reduces waste in and around our coastline.
