Marine Conservation Fine Art Print– ‘Netted Horopekapeka’
This print is inspired by Horopekapeka, (Bronze Whaler Shark) which are seen in and around the Hauraki Gulf. I use ‘Shark’ here as a metaphor for all species of sharks still caught in bycatch or commercially fished for food, among other threats. The horopekapeka is certified as near threatened globally (by the IUN) and its numbers are progressively declining due to commercial fishing. Bycatch limits and preventative fishing management measures are in place in some countries, but these solutions need to grow globally with further measures put in place.

The following art prints for sale are a response to the declining state of the Hauraki Gulf, Aotearoa due to over fishing, marine pollution and climate change but also a celebration of the ocean and the wonderful creatures that inhabit it .
The project is an initiative fully driven in partnership by mana whenua and the Waiheke community to protect and regenerate Waiheke Island’s marine environment.
