Fish & Game Election 2018

Are you a keen angler or hunter or both who’d like a bigger say in how fishing and game bird hunting is managed? 

Fish and Game councils provide an essential role in our ‘user pays, user says’ democratic management of sports fish and game birds.

Fish & Game’s elections held every three years are on again this year – to choose councillors to represent the interests of anglers and hunters in each of the organisation’s 12 regions.

The councillors’ tasks include setting regional fishing and hunting regulations, often in response to submissions from licenceholders, developing policy, prioritising management direction through work plans for staff. Another key role is the promotion of freshwater sports fishing and game bird hunting in their local community. 

To be eligible to stand or vote, you must have a current fishing or game bird hunting licence.
