Fish and Game

Fish and Game NZ manages, maintains and enhances sports fish and game birds and their habitats in the best long-term interests of present and future generations of anglers and hunters.

Fish and Game NZ is a non-profit organisation that receives no government or taxpayer money, and is funded entirely through fishing and hunting licences. These licence fees are used to support a range of actions, including the following:

  • Monitoring and surveying species populations; setting season regulations; managing pressure on the resource.
  • Protecting and enhancing lakes, rivers, streams and wetlands; RMA issues and advocating against consents which impact on valued habitats and providing ‘national park’ status to our important rivers through Water Conservation Orders.
  • Maintaining public advocacy; schools programme; website and newsletters; community liaison; promoting the right of licenced anglers and game bird hunters to pursue their chosen pastime.
