North Canterbury region

Fish & Game New Zealand’s North Canterbury region offers much to the angler. Without a doubt the star attraction of the region is the sea-run salmon fishery. Mallard ducks are the most abundant and popular game bird in the region. The paradise shelduck is the next most popular species among hunters in the region and like the mallard, also does well in developed land.
