Ministry for Primary Industries works to ensure that fisheries are used in a sustainable way and that we have a healthy aquatic ecosystem. That way all New Zealander’s can get the best value from this resource.
The Ministry of Fisheries (MFish) merged with the Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry. The new ministry became the Ministry for Primary Industries (MPI).
Ministry for Primary Industries works to ensure that fisheries are used in a sustainable way and that we have a healthy aquatic ecosystem. That way, all New Zealanders can get the best value from this resource.
We do this by researching fisheries, managing the process for access and allocation of fisheries and ensuring that everyone who uses New Zealand’s fisheries comply with the rules and regulations that govern and protect them. Find out more about us…
