Sports Fisheries and Conservation Values
To establish, maintain and enhance primarily the sports fisheries values and secondarily the conservation values of the waters of the Clutha catchment for the benefit of the people of New Zealand in recognition of the effects of the Clyde Dam development.
The Trust Objectives set the operational outer limits and provides a broad focus for the work of the Trust, interpreted as follows:
The geographical boundaries are “the waters of the Clutha catchment”
Functional activities need to be associated with “sports fisheries values” and “conservation values”
Operational activities need to be directed towards “establishing, maintaining and enhancing” the above.
The focus of the work must be “for the benefit of the people of New Zealand”.
