What happened to the Dept. of Agriculture and Fisheries?

The Department of Agriculture and Fisheries (Ag and Fish) was divided into the Department of Conservation Services and Department of Environmental Protection in 2002.

Conservation Services is responsible for managing historic shipwrecks and nature reserves, including Nonsuch Island, as well as species management and recovery plans and programmes. Conservation Services is also responsible for agricultural services and operation of the Marketing Centre.

Environmental Protection is responsible for enforcement matters, such as fisheries wardens and animal control. This department also operates the plant protection lab, carries out fisheries related research, and air and water quality monitoring. Dog licenses, animal and plant imports, fishing and lobster licenses are all handled by Environmental Protection.
