About the report
In January 2008, the Queensland Department of Primary Industries and Fisheries provided a submission for further assessment of the Queensland Rocky Reef Fin Fish Fishery under Parts 13 and 13A of the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999 (EPBC Act). The submission – the Annual Status Report 2005 - Queensland Rocky Reef Fin Fish Fishery, the Annual Status Report 2006 - Queensland Rocky Reef Fin Fish Fishery, and the Annual Status Report 2007 - Queensland Rocky Reef Fin Fish 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 Department of Environment and Heritage in April 2005.
The 2008 DEWHA assessment report considers the submission and associated documents and provides an assessment against the wildlife trade and protected species provisions of the EPBC Act.
