Netted Horopekapeka


Marine Conservation Fine Art PrintNetted 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.
