LegaSea is your opportunity to support the people who are standing up for our future fishing interests.

LegaSea is a public outreach initiative of the New Zealand Sport Fishing Council. The Council has an experienced fisheries management, science, policy and legal team. On behalf of the Council LegaSea raises funds and provides public-friendly information about a variety of processes that are important to the sustainable management of fisheries for future generations.

We support and promote your interests for conservative management of our precious fisheries resources, to ensure there are abundant fisheries so future generations can enjoy a meaningful fishing experience.

Our non-commercial fishing interests encompass access, abundance, social, cultural and environmental issues - usually the real hard stuff that most of us struggle to understand. Lucky for us the New Zealand Sport Fishing Council has an expert team who know how to speak the science and management lingo, they know what works (most of the time) and they know how powerful we could be if we all stood up for ourselves, contributed a little and resourced this team to do more work.

LegaSea is both a response to this complex range of issues and a fundraising initiative to support this team to be more effective and dynamic. The objective is 'Fish for the People'.

It's this simple approach that enables you to contribute a regular amount of $10 or more, that's less than a coffee and some bait, and have that money used to resource effective lobbying for more abundant fisheries and improved management practices. Then you can get on with your life and leave the team to do what they are good at!

In return you benefit from having a hand in making a difference to our fishing, now and in the future.

You can have a say in how our fisheries and environment are managed and you will receive the reports and other e-news that will keep you informed of changes and any developments that impact on our non-commercial fishing interests.

Assuming we do our job well, we hope that you will encourage your family and friends to support you and contribute to LegaSea too. Together we can leave a legacy of abundance for future generations.
