Fishing paradise with a tsunami risk

(Dec. 17, 2013) -- Holidays don't get better than camping and fishing at Goose Bay. People return for attractive camping grounds, to wade into the water or putter out to sea in small boats after fish, even though it is regarded as a tsunami risk.

GOOSE BAY, Canada — Holidays don’t get better than camping and fishing at Goose Bay, according to the Press. Leisure seekers return frequently to the attractive camping grounds, to wade into the water or putter out to sea in small boats after fish.  The Press reports that the coastline south of Kaikoura is regarded by scientists as a tsunami risk.

Diving enthusiast Don Scott tells the Press the risk of being hit crossing the highway or railway along the narrow coastline is greater than being swamped by a tsunami. He has dived around New Zealand and other countries. He rates this section of coast as his favorite.

“It is at the bottom end of the Kermadec Trench that brings nutrients which attract crayfish and paua. It is very deep so it flushes and clears quickly after a southerly. Clear water freshens it up very quickly and you get lots of sea life. It’s cold water so there are no corals but it is not over- crowded,” Scott explains to the Press.
