Weed Spraying on the Rotorua Lakes

Weed spraying on many of the Rotorua lakes is due to take place between November 14 and December 2.

This is a standard operation that has been carried out for many years to knock-back the incursion of invasive weed species which affect angling.

Te Arawa Lakes Trust manage the spraying operation. A webpage with details can be found here: https://tearawa.io/te-waikai-otaota-te-arawa-lakes-aquatic-weed-treatment-set-to-launch/ Please contact Te Arawa Lakes Trust if you have any questions.

A temporary rahui will be in place at the spray site for a period of 24 hours. The rest of the lake will remain open to fishing and food gathering. Signs will be erected at spray sites during operations.
