New scallop season

Fresh scallop lovers in Auckland and Northland will have to wait a little longer for their delicacy this year with the season for recreational gathering on east and west coasts changing from a mid-July opening to September 1.

The new recreational scallop taking season for Auckland and Northland now runs from September until March 31.
