Election - FAQ's

Fish & Game manages freshwater fishing and game bird hunting for the country’s anglers and hunters.

It is what is known as a “statutory” organisation, set up under the Conservation Act, and reports to the Minister of Conservation.

The organisation sets the rules for sustainable fishing and game bird hunting and also fights to protect fish and wildlife habitat, especially wetlands and rivers.

It operates hatcheries and carries out research into how trout, salmon and game bird populations and their habitats are surviving.

Fish & Game is also actively involved with stream and river margin planting and wetland creation and restoration projects.
