Yes, the Osprey eats fish

Quote

The osprey is a diurnal, fish-eating bird of prey with a cosmopolitan range. It is a large raptor, reaching more than 60 cm (24 in) in length and 180 cm (71 in) across the wings. It is brown on the upperparts and predominantly greyish on the head and underparts.

The osprey tolerates a wide variety of habitats, nesting in any location near a body of water providing an adequate food supply.

As its other common names suggest, the osprey's diet consists almost exclusively of fish. It possesses specialized physical characteristics and exhibits unique behavior to assist in hunting and catching prey.

There are a number of sea birds in NZ that sometimes help us to find the fish. We look for the "work-ups" where schools of fish are feeding and the birds like to grab the fish that come to the surface when escaping the predator fish underneath. Sometimes there can be large areas bubbling with fish. The birds flock to these areas helping us to locate where the fish are from quite a distance away.

However the birds can be a bit annoying as they risk getting hooked up in our lines.
