Completed trip logs may be sent by mail, or an electronic logbook can be filled out online at Marine fisheries biologists use the results to assess the status of striped bass populations each year.

How do I get started? Contact the Marine Division at or (603) 868-1095 to get your logbook by mail or e-mail. Submit your logs by November 1, 2015, for a chance to win a framed print of “Shadow” by Victor E.

Wildlife & Sport Fish Restoration:
75 Years of Restoring, Managing and Researching Fish and Wildlife

Our thanks to hunters, shooters, anglers, boaters and our industry partners! With the purchase of firearms and ammunition, archery equipment, fishing equipment, and motorboat fuels, hunters, anglers and manufacturers pay excise taxes that are distributed to state fish and wildlife agencies for approved projects.

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service joins state fish and wildlife agencies, private industry and the public in a partnership to conserve fish and wildlife resources.

With help from over $137 million in federal aid funding over nearly three quarters of a century, N.H. Fish and Game has been able to:

  • Gain knowledge through research
  • Manage fish and wildlife populations
  • Acquire Wildlife Management Areas
  • Improve and protect aquatic habitat
  • Restore fish and wildlife populations
  • Conduct Hunter and Aquatic Education programs
  • Construct, upgrade and maintain more than 140 public access sites for boating and fishing.

Your purchase of hunting and fishing equipment and motorboat fuels supports wildlife and sport fish restoration and boating access facilities.
