About the assessment report
The Northern Territory (NT) Department of Primary Industries, Fisheries and Mines (DPIFM) submitted documents for assessment of the NT Timor Reef Fishery under Parts 13 and 13A of the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999 (EPBC Act). The draft document Timor Reef Fishery Re-Assessment Report (the submission) was received by the Department of Environment, Water, Heritage and the Arts (DEWHA) in February 2008. The submission was released for public comment which expired on 1 April 2008. No public comments were received.
The submission was used to assess the NT Timor Reef Fishery against the Australian Government Guidelines for the Ecologically Sustainable Management of Fisheries - 2nd Edition. This DEWHA Assessment Report (May 2008) considers the submission and associated documents and provides an assessment against the wildlife trade and protected species provisions of the EPBC Act.
