WELCOME TO THE NZ SPORT FISHING COUNCIL

The New Zealand Sport Fishing Council Inc (NZSFC), is a not for profit organisation originally founded in 1957 and incorporated on 3 March 1959, incorporation society number 223403. We currently have 50 affiliated member Clubs from the top of the North Island to the bottom of the South Island.

OUR VISION

To be the leading Sport Fishing organisation promoting and providing education, participation and pathways to sustainable marine fishing.

Over a million Kiwis go fishing annually. Whether it’s children learning to fish from wharves and beaches, or family outings to catch and enjoy a feed of fish through to those who target game fish and test their skills in sport fishing, fishing is an integral part of New Zealand’s heritage, culture and outdoor recreation. Fishing is a social and recreational outdoor activity and New Zealand has world class fisheries with many thousands of tourists visiting to explore our waters.

NZSFC fills a variety of needs and supports the million or so New Zealanders that fish. A key role is to advocate for responsible and sustainable management of our marine environment to ensure future generations are able to enjoy the unique resource we have. The Council conducts education programs, commissions and funds fisheries research projects, and participates in fisheries management.
