PNG has become a place of attraction for all types of people and industry. It is a country that is experiencing a boom in the mineral and resources sector. With this growth sector has the country witnessed an influx in expatriate skilled workers and this has contributed to the growth of Sport Fishing PNG as a local service provider in the area of sport fishing, boat charter services and other recreational activities in the country. In contrast, PNG is still heavily influenced by its diverse cultural history which boasts over 800 indigenous languages, and experienced a century of german and british colonial rule. Only 30 years young, this country has had to transform itself from stoneage to computer age in less then 60 years but in doing so the country has managed to sustain its iconic melanesian culture and way of life. This is what makes PNG such as a special destination and to further attribute to this unique destination, is that it has some of the best sport fishing locations in the world for both Bluewater and river and estuary fisherman.
PNG is home to the PNG Black Bass and Niugini Spotted tail bass - a fish which is unique only to Papua New Guinea. It is a fish that is renowned worldwide as being the toughest fighting fish (pound for pound). Our rivers offer fantastic fishing for barramundi and saratoga and our bluewater fishing is abundant in all forms of pelagics and big game such as Marlin, sailfish, yellow fin tuna, Giant Trevally and Dog Tooth Tuna.
