Fisheries Queensland is seeking expressions of interests for stakeholders to join three new fishery working groups, including one on a coral reef fin fishery group.

FISHERIES Queensland is seeking expressions of interests for stakeholders to join three new fishery working groups.

Fisheries Queensland Executive Director Claire Andersen said as part of the $20 million Sustainable Fisheries Strategy, the Government was committed to better engaging stakeholders in fisheries management.

“We are now seeking expression of interests for the marine aquarium fish/coral, sea cucumber and the tropical rock lobster fishery working groups,” Ms Andersen said.

“There is also a vacancy that needs to be filled on the existing coral reef fin fish fishery working group.

“We are looking for experienced individuals. Recreational, commercial or indigenous fishers, commercial harvest operators, research or scientific advisors, seafood marketers and processors, or people with conservation experience are encouraged to apply.”

Ms Andersen said Fisheries Queensland had already established working groups for the east coast trawl, crab, and east coast inshore working groups.

“These groups are scheduled to have their first meeting in October and November, with the communiques being made available online after each meeting at www.fisheries.qld.gov.au,” she said. 

Ms Andersen said applications for the new working groups must be submitted by 5pm on Saturday, 14 October 2017.

“Successful applicants will be notified in writing and will be contacted to arrange attendance at the first working group meeting,” she said.

“We are expecting to finalise membership by the end of October 2017.”
