Consultation on the National Fisheries Plan is now open.
The Australian Government is now seeking feedback for the National Fisheries Plan. The plan aims to provide a shared vision and strategic framework to grow Australia’s fishing and seafood community.
Have Your Say here. Your input will help shape Australia’s first National Fisheries Plan.
Australia’s Commonwealth, state and territory governments manage fisheries in consultation with the fishing industry, scientists, economists and other user groups. This includes those that represent traditional fishing, recreational fishing and environmental non-government organisations.
These management processes implement controls, such as limits on catch or effort levels, and regulations of fishing methods to manage Australia’s fisheries in a sustainable way.
