Provided the boat is at a clay target range then I don't imagine it would be a problem.

There used to be a boat that did meal cruises in Wellington Harbour (the Wellesley?) that had a clay flinger on the back. I haven't seen it for a few years, but I can't imagine it's illegal IF you comply with the Arms Act and use a bit of common sense.

That said, a phone call to the Arms Officer is a bit of cheap insurance....

If you look at these guys posts on 26 and 24 November they are doing it right in Rangi channel. I don't necessarily agree with this firstly because they were potentially shooting towards an area near rangi lighthouse were people could be spear fishing unseen, secondly I don't really like shot, wads and targets going into the ocean here, it's really just another form of garbage going into the gulf at Auckland.

If you aren't breaking any laws re annoying people etc and are in a safe area no problem .Way out at sea would be ideal.
Use fibre wads and steel shot and black clays and take the empties home then there will be little problem with pollution . Photo degradable wads can last for a long time until they get enough sunlight to break them down .

It depends on your boat size ,I have sold a number of traps to guys to set up on launches and super yachts  , you have to have enough deck space to be able to shoot safely
  

Shooting is the most fun you can legally have with your clothes on .

The lazy do not roast any game, but the diligent feed on the riches of the hunt.
