presented by the New Zealand Sport Fishing Council - LegaSea
The New Zealand Sport Fishing Council has an experienced fisheries management, science, policy and legal team.
The Council has proudly and determinedly represented our recreational fishing and environmental interests for 59 years.
We strive to present cogent arguments and develop policies with the objective of ensuring the management measures and controls applying in our fisheries are designed and implemented to achieve the Purpose and Principles of the Fisheries Act 1996.
Restoring abundance in our inshore fisheries has been a particular focus for the Council.
Due to the extensive, nationwide interest of our 57 clubs the Council submits on a range of issues and proposals. Given these broad interests our team also engages in a variety of processes that impact on the marine environment.
LegaSea provides public-friendly information so you can understand the complex issues and threats facing our recreational and environmental fishing interests.
