Moving species to existing and new locations
Fisheries New Zealand authorises the transfer of freshwater species to locations where they already exist. We do this by giving you an Aquatic Life Transfer Authorisation.
If you're transferring a species to a location where it does not exist, contact the Department of Conservation.
