F&G Position Statements

Because of our strong stance on the need to protect freshwater quality, crucial for sport fish and game bird habitat, as well as the right of the general public to access lakes, rivers and wetlands for recreational enjoyment, Fish & Game plays a central roll in protecting core Kiwi values.

This section provides topical views and opinions from Fish & Game New Zealand on major sporting, environmental and other issues facing the fishing and game bird hunting communities in New Zealand.

These statements aim to reflect new developments, and new issues will be analysed as they arise.
