Call for expressions of interest for NSW Fishery Harvest Strategy Working Group


A NEW Harvest Strategy Working Group is being established to engage key stakeholders in a collaborative process to develop harvest strategies for key species in the NSW inshore and offshore line and trap fisheries across all harvest sectors, commencing with yellowtail kingfish and snapper.

Harvest strategies are designed to provide transparent decision-making frameworks that define agreed management objectives for a fishery or species, and actions necessary to achieve the objectives. Harvest strategies will consider and seek to encompass relevant commercial, recreational and Aboriginal fishing to develop an integrated fishery or stock management approach.

The Working Group will provide its advice on Harvest Strategies to RFNSW and CommFish NSW for consideration, and public submissions will also be invited once draft strategies are developed.

Expressions of interest for membership are now open for recreational, commercial, Aboriginal and independent expert members. Applications close 14 September 2022.
