Public consultation on the draft Commonwealth Fisheries Harvest Strategy Policy

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Submissions denoted by ‘*NFP’ (not for publication) relate to:

  • submissions that have been provided ‘in confidence’ to the government at the request of authors or where authors have not authorised publication of their submission on the website or
  • submissions that contain offensive language, potentially defamatory material, or copyright infringing material.

Responsibility for copyright in submissions resides with the author/s, not the Department of Agriculture and Water Resources.

Privacy

Your contact information will not be provided to any other person or organisation. If a submission contains information relating to a third party individual, the author of the submission will be taken to have obtained the expressed and informed consent of the relevant third party.

Discretion of Australian Government to refuse to publish material
