High Tide Geese

The rich natural resources of Great Bay have provided humans with food and recreation opportunities  for thousands of years. Fish, shellfish, waterfowl, and mammals, are found in abundance in and around the estuary and hunting and fishing is a significant part of New Hampshire culture.  The Great Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve is part of NH Fish & Game and any Reserve property owned by Fish & Game is open to hunting and fishing. For rules and regulations about hunting and fishing please visit the NH Fish & Game website.
