Trout can’t be bought or sold commercially in New Zealand, which means you won’t find trout on the menu at your favourite Taupo restaurant. This prohibition is aimed at protecting the sustainability of the recreational trout fishery.
If you want to try the delicious taste of trout, you’ll need to catch it wild yourself. You can book a fishing charter where the skipper will prepare your fish onboard.
