Thank you for your interest in the development of the revised Commonwealth Fisheries Harvest Strategy Policy – submissions are now closed.
The Department of Agriculture and Water Resources released the revised policy for public comment over the five week period ending 9 June 2017.
It draws upon the outcomes of the Report on the review of the Commonwealth Fisheries Harvest Strategy Policy and Guidelines of May 2013 and provides other relevant updates to ensure the Commonwealth’s approach to fisheries management continues to reflect international best practice.
Public Submission on the revised Bycatch Policy
All submissions that were received by the government have been published to the extent possible.
Submissions denoted by ‘*NFP’ (not for publication) relate to:
