Welcome to the New Zealand Fisheries information website

This site celebrates the diversity of New Zealand's fisheries and those who value them. It provides information on our fisheries and marine environment, explains how fisheries are managed for long-term sustainability, and describes New Zealands fisheries in a global context.

On 1 July 2011, the Ministry of Fisheries (MFish) merged with the Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry. The new ministry became the Ministry for Primary Industries (MPI) on 30 April 2012. The merger significantly enhances our ability to deliver high-quality services and support to the whole of the primary sector. Find out more about us...
