From the Far North to the West Coast of the South Island, Snapper gives fascinating insights into the life story and history of these remarkable fish, the beauty of the places they are found, and the people who catch or study them from boats, off the shore, or in the water, either for enjoyment, a living, or to put fresh kaimoana on the table. From the unique place of the tamure in the Maori world, the experiences of the early Europeans, the art featuring them, the commercial history and recreational methods old and new, to the latest scientific research, this book is not just for fishers: it is a collector's cache of places, characters, nostalgia, yarns, facts and photos about New Zealand's most popular fish.
