Seal snatches snapper from line

An Auckland man couldn’t believe it when a seal snatched the fish his father-in-law had just caught. Hassan Tariq was on a fishing charter today when his father-in-law caught a snapper in the Hauraki Gulf, between Mission Bay and Rangitoto Island. While Mr Tariq was getting a landing net to scoop the large fish out of the water, a seal swam up from under the boat and grabbed the snapper.
