About the report
In August 2007, the Northern Territory (NT) Department of Primary Industries, Fisheries and Mines provided a submission for further assessment of the NT Offshore Net and Line Fishery under Parts 13 and 13A of the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999 (EPBC Act).
The submission - NT Offshore Net and Line Fishery Re-assessment Report and Review of the NT Offshore Net and Line Fishery - reports against the Australian Government Guidelines for the Ecologically Sustainable Management of Fisheries - 2nd Edition and provides updates on the implementation of recommendations made in the original assessment undertaken by the then Department of the Environment and Heritage in November 2004.
The 2007 Department of the Environment and Water Resources' assessment report considers the submission and associated documents and provides an assessment against the wildlife trade and protected species provisions of the EPBC Act.
