Summary
"[Joseph] Stewart Smith was the only person requested by the New Zealand Government to be a trout poacher. He smoked thousands of the fish with their blessing, many gracing the tables of senior civil servants. He went on to spread outlawed, weed-eating fish around the upper North Island, as an alternative sport fish to trout, which don't breed well in the warmer zones of the nation. For that he was castigated and convicted, while entertaining others with his exploits. As recently as 2005, the 94-year old was still breeding illegal fish, outwitting border security and flummoxing Academia. This is more than a tale of an intriguing individual however. It's a window into the evolving and often contradictory work of environmental agencies both in New Zealand and worldwide"--Back cover
