West Coast Whitebait
For the visitor it may be hard to understand why we get so excited about a tiny translucent fish but on the West Coast whitebait is a big deal.
Catch some yourself! Nets and information are available in outdoor stores in town.
It's worth heading down to the river-mouth to watch others scooping. The season is in Sept and Nov.
Taste why everyone gets so excited about these little fish at local cafes and restaurants.
