An independent review into commercial fisheries in New South Wales, Australia has suggested changes to improve sustainability.
Focusing on fishery policy, management and administration, the team recommended three key reforms:
1. A comprehensive structural adjustment program to address the problems of excess and poorly defined fishing rights if the original vision for share managed fisheries is to be realised;
2. Governance processes be reformed to achieve a proper balance of responsibilities and accountabilities within Government and industry to restore confidence in decision making; and
3. Consultation be reformed to provide for effective processes and structures to facilitate co‐ ordinated advice, communication and feedback between Government and industry.
