The government will spend millions of dollars on installing hundreds of cameras on commercial fishing boats in New Zealand.

Fisheries Minister, Stuart Nash, said the government is funding the cameras to ensure we look after our fish stocks.

The Government intend to install around 345 cameras.

Cameras would cover all inshore areas where fishing poses significant risks to protected species.

Once signed off, installation could start in 2021. The estimated cost is $40 million to $60 million over four years.

Last year the government paid for cameras on 20 fishing vessels in areas that pose the highest risk to Māui dolphins, off the West Coast of the North Island.
