Freshwater anglers and Game Bird hunters are being urged to make sure they are registered to vote in this year’s Fish and Game Council elections.

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 were held 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 licence holders, 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.
