Crayfishers Crayfishers is a high-energy observational documentary series following the seafaring fortunes of one of New Zealand’s biggest Maori fishing families, the Fishers. The Fisher whanau has a long and proud tradition in the Southern Ocean, their tipuna (ancestors) have fished the waters around Stewart Island, off the southern-most tip of New Zealand’s south Island for centuries. Dad Vaughn is one of the godfathers of the Crayfish (rock lobster) industry and he’s been living his dream building one of the most successful operations. But there is a new generation taking over as Vaughn’s handed over the wheelhouse to his youngest son Jayce. As the Maori proverb goes “Ka pu te ruha, ka hao te rangatahi”…The old net is cast aside, the new net goes fishing. Crayfishers is a father and son coming of age story.
