Division of Fish & Wildlife

We Bring You Delaware’s Great Outdoors
through Science and Service

The Division of Fish & Wildlife conserves and manages Delaware’s fish and wildlife and their habitats, and provides fishing, hunting, wildlife viewing and boating access on nearly 65,000 acres of public land. Fish and wildlife resource conservation and safe boating are achieved through promoting public compliance with laws and regulations. We control mosquito populations to improve quality of life and protect public health. The division delivers hunter, boating and aquatic education programs, and provides licensing and boat registration services.

Attention Hunters, Anglers, and Outdoor Enthusiasts:

People entering Delaware from out of state must immediately self-quarantine for 14 days before engaging in fishing, hunting, or golf, and before visiting state parks and wildlife areas or using boat ramps. The self-quarantine must begin at the time of entry into Delaware. Find more information on DNREC’s coronavirus response. Visit for statewide information and updates.
