Fish and Wildlife Councils and Committees

Permanent URI for this collection

The Fish and Wildlife Councils and Committees of the State of New Jersey have a unique role in the management of our fish and wildlife resources. Members of the councils are appointed by the Governor and function as unpaid volunteers who act in the best interest of the state's fish and wildlife resources on behalf of the public. The councils help create and finalize each year's hunting and fishing regulations and enable the professional and scientific management of our resources.

There are 6 New Jersey councils and committees: Fish and Game Council; Marine Fisheries Council; Shellfisheries Council (divided into the Atlantic Coast and Delaware Bay sections); Endangered and Nongame Species Advisory Committee; Wildlife Rehabilitators Advisory Committee; and Waterfowl Stamp Advisory Committee.
