This is an exciting time in the history of recreational fisheries advocacy and management. The NZRFC Board has taken stock of its role, operation and achievements for recreational fisheries and fishers. We have realised that continuing to operate with volunteer-run advocacy cannot deliver "Guaranteed access to abundant fisheries". A move to a coordinated statutory authority for recreational fisheries however will have the capacity to get to this Vision. Such a change must happen in steps and must be guided and supported by you the recreational fisher. To accomplish the change in a way that best suits your needs, we need to hear from you!

We request that our members and other recreational fishers complete the following survey in order to gain feedback on the intended strategic direction of the NZRFC. With your feedback, not only will we be better serving our current members, but we'll have the feedback to attract new members too. Data from this survey will be used to directly improve the NZRFC Strategic Plan 2011-2014.

Your input is very valuable and important to us. Thank you very much for your time in participating in our survey.
