Saving the wasted parts of every fish caught is helping the environment and providing tasty delicacies around the Auckland region, says Daily Encourager, thanks to a project called Kai Ika. An approach was made to the Papatūānuku Kōkiri Marae in Māngere East which had a food distribution system in place and soon Kai Ika was born. The programme grew out of another venture called FishCare that aimed to help recreational fishers minimise their impact on the marine environment which included using as much of each fish as possible.
