Whitebaiting

It's an annual tradition to go whitebaiting in Aotearoa New Zealand with traditional estuary / river spots being handed down through the generations.
Whitebait is a collective term for the immature fry of fish, typically between 25 and 50 millimetres (1 and 2 in) long. Such young fish often travel together in schools along coasts, and move into estuaries and sometimes up rivers where they can be easily caught using fine-meshed fishing nets. 
There's rules about when, how, and who can catch them, it's a big deal.

Most people make whitebait fritters, I don't eat them.
