Aquaculture and Seafood Trail Fishing Coromandel Peninsula
  Waikawau is a popular site for boat launching for recreational fishers, as it is close to the mussel farms with their abundant fish stocks.

Tourism

 

Another successful spin-off industry has been in the development of fishing tours out around the Wilson's Bay mussel farms.

Fishermen report good catches around the mussel lines, which attract a wide range of fish species through the easy availability of food.

Entrepreneurial tourism operators have taken advantage of this added bonus from the mussel farms to create a thriving tourism experience.

Fishing around the mussel farms
Locals take advantage of the abundant fish around the mussel farms. Tourism operators also operate popular fishing trips.

 

Mussel Barge & Kayak Fishing

As the mussel farms attract large numbers of fish, there are a lot of tourists and locals who like to go out fishing beside the farms – particularly the big farm off Wilsons Bay. To cater for this demand, there are a number of charter vessels operating from Coromandel harbour. They tend to launch primarily from Te Kouma Road, either at the Hannifords Wharf or the Sugarloaf Wharf – although some also operate from Waikawau.
