The Big Picture: Fish and Game Budget

Where the money comes from; where the money goes.


The New Hampshire Fish and Game Department 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. As the charts below show, 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 support work. All of these are essential to ensure that the Department can effectively serve the wildlife and people of New Hampshire.
