Man-made, organic, biodegrable fish bait, developed to assist fish sustainability and abundance tested on Hauraki Gulf.

John from Campbells Bay

Hi. Over the last 25 years I have been working on the seemingly impossible task into trying to fool fish into eating (taking) a man-made fish bait.

Over the last 25 years I have been working on the seemingly impossible task into trying to fool fish into eating (taking) a man-made fish bait. (Not talking soft baits here which are not entirely eco-friendly). There has been many attempts at producing a product such as this and as far as I'm aware it has never been achieved successfully and that's why it has taken me so long to achieve, to produce a fish bait that has the potential to change the way we fish, both for commercial long lining and recreational fishermen. The thing is, bait fish are part of the food chain for larger fish and under pressure, as are most fish species now. Removal of bait fish is removal of food for the big fish we eat.
Besides trawling for fish, which is an indiscriminate, irresponsible slaughter of many fish species, bait fish food removal from the oceans is not sustainable and abundance is threatened. ECOBAIT is the name I have given to this fish bait and is aptly named. It ticks all the boxes: catches fish on longlines and rods, fully biodegradable, does not require freezing, no waste. Also 1 KG of ECOBAIT will produce approximately 250 baits as opposed to 1 KG of pilchard which will produce approximately 50 baits, so it will be very cost effective when it comes to market. If you wish to see more please go to YouTube and search 'Hooked on Hauraki - Ecobait'. There you see our first public trial. If you have any questions you can email me on john@ecobaits.co.nz.
Also, if you have a business interest in this product options are still open as a ground floor opportunity for an investor, manufacturer, or master franchisee. There are also two types of business opportunities here, one is for the long line fishing industry, which is massive world wide, and also a retail market suited for the recreational fisher person. My intention is that ECOBAIT will only be manufactured here in NZ and therefore the world is your market. ECOBAIT was assisted by food scientists in NZ as well as in Europe who took two years to develop a binding agent that worked affectively under water up to 40 degrees. It also contains disguisers in the formulation so will not be easily reversed engineered to be copied, ensuring exclusive market to the manufacturer.
Cheers John

A caring community is one that’s there for us in good times, and in our times of need. That’s the community Hoko and Glenda found at Diana Isaac Retirement Village in Christchurch.

“The staff are absolutely amazing,” explains Glenda. “They go out of their way to speak to you, to make sure you’re ok.”
Hoko and Glenda feel very fortunate for the support they received when Hoko experienced some health issues. It wasn’t just the village staff who provided support, the whole community rallied around them.
“When I got sick the community itself looked after me,” Hoko explains.
“I can’t speak highly enough of the staff here,” Glenda says.

This curry keeps well in the fridge for a few days and the leftovers taste even better the next day.

Ingredients
1 kg Chicken pieces, including thighs, drums, wings
2 cloves Garlic
5 cm Fresh ginger, peeled
1 med Onion, peeled and cut into quaters
1 Tbsp Oil
1 large Lemon, or lime, freshly juiced
1 Tbsp Cumin seeds
1 pinch Cayenne pepper
2 Tbsp Tomato paste
½ cup Cream, or yoghurt

Directions
Remove skin from the chicken if you prefer.
Place garlic, ginger and onion in a food processor. Blend until smooth. Add 150ml water to make into a thin puree.
Heat the oil in a heavy-based frying pan. When hot, add the chicken pieces and brown on both sides. While cooking season with salt.
When the chicken is nicely browned, squeeze over the lemon juice and continue cooking for 2 minutes. Add the cumin seeds, cayenne and tomato paste.
Pour in the garlic, onion and ginger puree, cover the frying pan with a lid and simmer for 5 minutes.
Turn the chicken. Stir in the cream or yoghurt. Add enough water to cover the chicken, cover and continue to cook on a low heat for 20-30 minutes or until the chicken is cooked. Cooking time will depend on the cut of chicken you have used and whether it is on the bone.
Check for seasoning — you may need more salt or cayenne if you like it hot.
Remove from the heat and rest with the lid on for 5-10 minutes. The chicken will keep cooking in this time and will be more tender when you come to eat it.
Serve with rice and steamed seasonal vegetables.
