Fish and Game Funding

The New Hampshire Fish and Game Department is uses revenue from fishing and hunting license fees, federal funds and other sources to accomplish its broad mission of conserving, managing and protecting the state’s fish, wildlife and marine resources and their habitats; informing and educating the public; and providing opportunities for people to use and appreciate these resources.

Fish and Game’s budget sustains the full range of habitat and fish and wildlife management tasks, plus conservation education, law enforcement, search and rescue, and more. All of these functions are essential to ensure that we can effectively serve the wildlife and people of New Hampshire.

They help support fish and wildlife research and management in New Hampshire, as well as Hunter Education, Aquatic Resources Education and the state's Public Boat Access Program.
