We'd love your help.

We are always looking for new members to help with our salmon rearing project, and our annual fundraisers, or just to be a part of the group and follow our progress.

Here's how.

  • Become a member.
    It's free.  Contact us to join and we'll sign you up to our quarterly newsletter so you can keep up to date with what we are doing.

  • Fundraise.
    Our main annual fundraiser is chopping and selling firewood.  We also help set up the Poultry Show in Oamaru, and collect old lead batteries. You can help by collecting them on our behalf or if you have any that we can make use of,  please contact us and we will arrange collection. 

  • Trap salmon.
    We no longer do this activity because we cannot trap sufficient fish for supply of eggs to our incubation facility. We now operate a brood stock rearing facility for egg and milt raising purposes. With this ability we can raise the required number of fish for release. 

  • Tag salmon.
    This is a fun day, and we need a lot of helpers.  We are clipping our salmon fry for release to the wild at 10am on Saturday the 20th of May 2023. We need all the helpers we can get. We have 10,000 fish to fin clip. At the completion of the working bee a sausage sizzle will be held with light refreshments . This is a family occasion and is a fun activity. 

  • Make a donation.
    We accept donations here.

  • Verify any fin clipped salmon you catch.
    Should you catch a fin clipped salmon in the Waitaki River please take the fish to either Oamaru Sports and Outdoors, the Glenavy Hotel, or Waimate Outdoors.  The fish will be verified and a scale sample will be taken. This information is very important to our organisation as it is the only way in which we can qualify our results.  Please have your fin clipped fish verified by an independant person and photographed clearly showing the clipped fin, and you will be entered into a draw for one of up to five prizes of a Sports voucher to the value of $100.
