With easy access to beaches, coastlines and water routes, New Zealand’s waters are constantly under threat from poaching, over-fishing and illegal activity. From major poaching ring master-minds to push-your-luck recreational fishermen, Fisheries is always on the look out for abuse of our natural marine resources.

The Maritime Police, along with the Police National Dive Squad, are also on high alert for any maritime emergencies.

Follow the strategic and planned surveillance and bust operations for relentless poachers, as well as Fisheries officers targeting recreational fishermen who always take a few too many.

What can we expect from TV One in 2011?  Well, it appears as though the experiment of 2010 has been done away with and the edginess has gone and it’s returned to solid 25-54 programming.

7:30pm Monday, April 5 on TV One

Coastwatch returns for a fifth season tonight on TV ONE at 7.30pm following the men and women who patrol and protect New Zealand’s precious marine environment: the Ministry of Fisheries and the New Zealand Air Force, and those who keep our waterways safe from risk and accidents: the Maritime Police and Coastguard.

The task facing these organisations is huge. Illegal fishing and poaching is still a major problem throughout New Zealand. Highly organised poaching rings with criminal networks stretching into Asia and the Pacific are targeting paua and other shellfish. As well as large scale poaching there is the relentless tide of reckless or carefree shell-food gatherers and recreational fishermen who often exceed their daily limit.

In 2008 the Ministry of Fisheries carried out over 27,000 inspections, resulting in millions of dollars of boats, vehicles and other fishing equipment being seized as a result of illegal activity.

The Maritime Police and Coastguard are constantly on the alert around our coastline looking for sailors caught off-guard by changeable weather and freak storms or saving pleasure craft from being ransacked in the deep of the night.

Episode one sees a high-speed chase to catch a Northland Paua poacher; abuse of customary fishing regulations; and the Maritime Police go searching for weapons.
