Public consultation on the Commonwealth fisheries resource sharing framework discussion paper is now closed. Thank you for sharing your feedback.

We are developing a framework for sharing Australia’s Commonwealth fisheries resources.

The framework will provide a clear way to allocate fisheries resources. It will be applied to Commonwealth-managed fisheries. It will not impact state-managed and territory-managed fisheries.

How you had your say

We sought feedback on our discussion paper from 5 March to 21 May 2020.

We received 32 responses. View all submissions that were made publicly available.

The discussion paper sets out the principles and approach for developing resource sharing arrangements.

The discussion paper was informed by:

  • our survey in September to October 2019
  • outcomes from the National Fishing Advisory Council (NFAC) meeting in September 2019
  • face-to-face meetings with stakeholders.

Next steps

Your feedback will inform a draft resource sharing framework. We expect to release a draft framework in mid-2020.
