    The Government is therefore proposing a measured approach that assesses the best management model for each fishery, with a clear preference where feasible to use quota to constrain catch and improve economic viability.


    performance indicators—what will be measured and tracked over time (e.g. stock size estimates from the stock assessment)


    Programs for the collection of recreational fishing data currently include periodic statewide surveys and boat ramp surveys for regional catch and effort data. Reliable information on recreational catch and effort is needed for resourcesharing processes.

    However, there are currently limited mechanisms available to validate commercial catch and effort reporting. Fishers are also required to record interactions with species of conservation interest, but there is no way to independently validate this data. Consequently, there is distrust in the accuracy of some commercial data.

    To address these issues, the Government will work with industry to implement ways to improve the accuracy and timeliness of catch reporting, including programs to independently validate catch and effort data and records of interactions with species of conservation interest. The application of electronic monitoring technologies to perform these functions will be explored.





    Reform proposals:

    ▸ Progressively improve the accuracy and timeliness of catch reporting, including introducing programs to independently validate commercial catch and effort information and interactions with species of conservation interest. ▸ Introduce a robust and comprehensive system for checking, analysing and controlling the quality of incoming data. ▸ Future recreational data collection programs are designed to meet management needs. ▸ Develop a practical and cost-effective program to address gaps in economic data to better assess the impacts of management decisions. ▸ Develop a data collection strategy for Indigenous fishing as part of the proposed Indigenous Fishing Strategy.
