The Westport News reports harbour authorities are considering banning a long-standing fishing tradition on health and safety grounds: whitebaiting from beneath the Westport wharf.

Whitebaiters were briefed over concerns about legal liability should one of them meet with an injury while whitebaiting on harbour land.

A group of whitebaiters is now seeking legal advice.
