Australian fisheries reviews shares sustainability recommendations

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.

  1. Hi,

    Recently I came across some great articles on your site. The other day, I was discussing (http://theaquaculturists.blogspot.in/2012/05/review-into-australian-fisheries.html ) with my colleagues and they suggested I submit an article of my own. Your site is just perfect for what I have written! Would it be ok to submit the article? It is free of charge, of course!

    Let me know what you think
