Three new fishery groups
EXPRESSIONS of interest are being sought from experienced individuals to join one of three new fishery working groups.
Fisheries Minister Bill Byrne said the working groups were fundamental to the delivery of a world-class fisheries management system under the new Sustainable Fisheries Strategy 2017-2027.
“We are in the early stages of the most significant reform of fisheries management in Queensland's history and this is an exciting opportunity for people to be part of it,” Mr Byrne said.
“We want to hear from people who want to be part of the east coast trawl, crab, and east coast inshore working groups.
“Working groups will provide advice on the operational aspects of the management of a particular fishery.”
The initial focus for the groups would be to provide advice on management options and to develop a harvest strategy.
Fisheries Queensland was seeking people with knowledge from a range of sectors including recreational, commercial or indigenous fishers and people with conservation experience.
