What Can I Expect To Catch? - Snapper - Kahawai - Yellow Tail Kingfish - Trevally Bird Watching Charters The Hauraki Gulf is covered with many islands which are breeding grounds for many birds. There are many more species that come to feed on the abundant fishlife. As the Gulf is a breeding ground for many fish there egg and larvae float on the surface which seabirds feed on. Some small fish feed on the eggs near the surfact and become food for Gannets Shearwaters and Black Petrels Situated less than hour from the coast is Little Barrier. This is a bird sanctuary and breeding spot for some of the birds we see on the Hauraki Gulf . It is also the breeding site of the New Zealand Storm Petrel. Which Assassin has been netting and radio tagging then tracking. Another popular bird breeding site is to the north at the Moko Hinau Islands. Both uninhabited by humans so there is an abundance of wildlife.
