Kia ora Kāi Tahu whānau ngā mihi ki a koutou katoa. I’m so excited it’s September – roll on the whitebaiting. I can’t wait for whānau to gather around a hot-pot of kai, waiting for these little fish to flow into our nets. Let’s hope they come in abundance for all of us – merry whitebait season whānau.
