Commercial fishers

December 12th, 2017

Baseline results from SELTMP surveys were obtained from commercial fishers surveyed by telephone in 2013.

We were able to access these through our own contacts databases, publicly-available data, and personal contacts. We surveyed commercial fishers that were in possession of at least one license which allowed access to the Great Barrier Reef.

A total of 91 surveys were completed by commercial fishers in 2017, and 210 in 2013.
