Fisheries Green Paper Feedback


Recommended Posts

Taken from DAF Catch News Autumn 2017 email newsletter 28 April

All stakeholders want reform in the way we manage fisheries – that was the overwhelming message from feedback to the Green Paper on fisheries management reform in Queensland.

Released for public consultation from July to October 2016, the Green Paper outlined where we are now, where we want to be, and how we can get there.

More than 11,800 responses were received, including 192 written submissions, 476 responses to the online long survey, 663 responses to the online short survey and over 10,500 form emails from the conservation sector.

Fisheries Queensland officers met with over 230 people at 126 meetings across Queensland during the consultation period to gather their views.

There was strong support from all sectors for better fishery monitoring, more effective engagement, more responsive decision-making and greater fisheries compliance.

The Queensland Government is committed to reforming fisheries, ensuring fisheries resources are managed in a sustainable and responsible manner that recognises the interests of all Queenslanders.

A Sustainable Fisheries Strategy is currently being prepared which will outline the government’s reform agenda for the next ten years, taking into account the public feedback on the Green Paper.

The government is aiming to finalise the Strategy by mid-2017.
