Kōrero: Whitebait and whitebaiting

Holding tanks and horseback

Up until the 1950s South Westland had few roads, and transporting whitebait to market from isolated rivers was difficult. In some places live whitebait were kept in boxes in the river, and pack horses were sometimes used to get them out to a road end, cannery, airstrip or boat.
