Fisheries – Domestic
We are a research provider for Australian domestic fisheries, including those managed by the Commonwealth and the states, and in several other countries throughout the Indo-Pacific.
The Australian Government approach to fisheries management is based on science with the objective of maintaining fish stocks at ecologically sustainable levels, and maximising the net economic returns to the Australian community. Legislation and policy also requires management to consider the impact of fishing activities on non-target species and the long-term sustainability of the marine environment, as well as explicit consideration of recreational and Indigenous fishing sectors.
