It all began in 2010.

On April 26th 2010 a public meeting was held, and the Waitaki Riparian Enhancement Society was formed.  

We are a voluntary organisation, we are funded by grants and donations and our annual fund raisers.

Our aim is to increase the wild salmon population in the Waitaki River.  We achieve this by trapping and raising salmon brood stock, and releasing them a year later at a weight of around 100gm.

We have over 240 members.  We have members that simply follow our progress via our newsletters, and others that like to get involved in our salmon rearing project and fund raisers.

To find out more about becoming a member please contact us here.
