Gulf of Carpentaria inshore fishery consultation

Project Overview

Thank you for your feedback on the implementation of gillnet-free zones in the Gulf of Carpentaria. This consultation has now closed and results of consultation are summarised in the consultation paper.

Results of this consultation will be used to guide the establishment of new gillnet-free zones announced on 5 June 2023 by the Australian and Queensland governments, and the implementation of Gulf of Carpentaria inshore fishery reforms as part of the Sustainable Fisheries Strategy – including the development of harvest and protected species management strategies, and general fishery reforms.
