Our Mission 

The Arkansas Game and Fish Commission plays an important role in keeping The Natural State true to its name. During the last 100 years, the agency has overseen the protection, conservation and preservation of various species of fish and wildlife in Arkansas. This is done through habitat management, fish stocking, hunting and fishing regulations, and a host of other programs.

Our agency is more than just managing "critters." An essential part of ensuring a healthy wildlife population involves people. Through agency programs geared toward the public, the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission works to generate awareness of ethical and sound management principles. Whether it be educational programs, fishing and hunting regulations or environmental awareness, the agency understands that working with people is just as important a factor in managing wildlife as any other. 

 

The Arkansas Game and Fish Commission’s mission is to conserve and enhance Arkansas’s fish and wildlife and their habitats while promoting sustainable use, public understanding and support.
