Cockle count in Whangateau Harbour

Students from Mahurangi College count cockles in the annual cockle count at Lew’s Bay

On Thursday October 19 a group of students from Mahurangi College joined with volunteers to conduct the annual Whangateau Harbour Care cockle count. When the data is analysed it will be interesting to see if the cockle beds are recovering or not. The shellfish beds have been closed since 2009 when there was a large die off of cockles.
