Lewis Avenell

Zone 2 Delegate - Auckland Region


Lewis grew up fishing on the Kaipara Harbour during summer visits to the family farm. Later he joined the Big Fish Fishing Club in Auckland.

After moving to Taranaki and joining the New Plymouth Sportfishing and Underwater Club he soon took up the role of club delegate to the Council. He quickly found himself appointed to be the Waikato/Taranaki representative on the New Zealand Sport Fishing Council Board.

Due to his growing interest Lewis is now an active contributor to the Fisheries Management – Marine Protection Standing Committee as well as the Legasea Governance Advisory Standing Committee and this year has been elected Chair of the Fisheries Management team.
