In 2019, the Australian Government committed to develop Australia’s first National Fisheries Plan, working with commercial, recreational, Indigenous and aquaculture fisheries. The Department of Agriculture, Water and the Environment is now working with state and territory fisheries agencies and stakeholders to deliver this commitment.

The department is seeking feedback on an Outline for consultation: National Fisheries Plan, which sets out a proposed vision for Australia’s fishing and seafood community and a list of actions to help ensure this vision is realised. In developing the outline for consultation, the department has received initial input from state and territory fisheries agencies and the National Fishing Advisory Council. The department has also heavily drawn upon key themes and priorities previously identified by stakeholders through past work, including:

We invite feedback on the outline for consultation from commercial, recreational and Indigenous fishers; fisheries managers and policy makers; seafood consumers; environmental non-government organisations; and interested members of the Australian public.

Your feedback will be used to develop the National Fisheries Plan, a shared vision for Australia’s fishing and seafood community.
