  • New Zealand Salmon Anglers Association is an organisation representing the fishery in the South Island of New Zealand. Our objectives are the enhancement and protection of the salmon fishery. In conjunction with North Canterbury Fish & Game, assisted breeding practices are carried out each year including hatchery reared ova for release as fry and collecting salmon ova for fertilisation and planting out in various types of stream incubators to hatch naturally and live releases to migrate out to sea.

    Each season salmon return to the river of origin and are targetted by anglers as a prize catch. Many salmon are not caught and migrate up the rivers to spawn naturally.

    Because of river conditions caused by water abstraction, pollution, stock accessing streams and other man-made or environmental factors it is necessary to carry out assisted breeding programmes. Much of this rewarding work is carried out by volunteers of this organisation.

    In addition a strong advocacy role is undertaken in making submissions to resource consent applications affecting the fishery habitat where members of our Association present factors in an endeavor to protect the fishery for future generations
