Welcome to the Fredericton Fish and Game Association!

A proud member branch of the New Brunswick Wildlife Federation, we are a non-profit association, established in 1924 in Fredericton, New Brunswick. As such, we are also one of the oldest fish and game clubs in the province. We have participated in countless area fish and wildlife enhancement projects over the years and have become a recognized voice for York and Sunbury County's hunters and anglers. Our mandate is conservation first.
