Update On Qld Fisheries Reform


Recommended Posts

Taken from DAF email newsletter CatchNews


In mid-2014 the Queensland Government commissioned an independent review of Queensland’s fisheries management to deliver a better system for the State’s commercial, recreational and Indigenous fishers.   The review was undertaken by consultants MRAG Asia Pacific who submitted a final report to the Government in late 2014.

Their report Taking Stock: Modernising fisheries management in Queensland recommended fundamental changes to the current approach to fisheries management and included 80 recommendations. It was released for public consultation in mid-2015. Stakeholder feedback on the report largely supported the need for broad fisheries management reform, including improved stakeholder engagement, a clearer decision-making framework and a more stable and transparent approach to resource allocation.

The Government will consider its response to the MRAG report in light of the stakeholder feedback and commitments in the Sustainable Fishing Policy later this year.
