Public consultation on the draft Commonwealth Fisheries Bycatch Policy

​Thank you for your interest in the development of the revised Commonwealth Fisheries Bycatch Policy.

The Department of Agriculture and Water Resources released the revised Commonwealth Fisheries Bycatch Policy for public comment over the five week period ending 9 June 2017.

The revised policy provides a framework for managing fishing-related impacts to bycatch species in Commonwealth fisheries. It draws upon the outcomes of the Report on the review of the Commonwealth Policy on Fisheries Bycatch of May 2013 and provides other relevant updates to ensure the Commonwealth’s approach to bycatch management continues to reflect international best practice.
