About the assessment report
The Queensland Department of Primary Industry and Fisheries (DPI&F) has submitted a document for assessment under Parts 13 and 13A of the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999 (EPBC Act). The draft document Ecological Assessment of Queensland's Marine Specimen Shell Collection Fishery (the submission) was received by the Department of Environment and Heritage (DEH) in May 2004. The submission was released for a thirty-day public comment period that expired on 10 September 2004. Two public comments were received and DPI&F provided a response to those comments. No changes were made to the submission as a result of public comment.
The submission reports on the Queensland Marine Specimen Shell Collection Fishery (MSSCF) against the Australian Government Guidelines for the Ecologically Sustainable Management of Fisheries. The DEH assessment considers the submission, associated documents, public comments and DPI&F's response to the comments.
