About the report
Primary Industries and Resources South Australia (PIRSA) has submitted a document for assessment under Part 13A of the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999 (EPBC Act). The draft document Ecological Assessment of the South Australian Beach-cast Seagrass and Marine Algae Fishery (the submission) was received by the Department of the Environment and Heritage (DEH) in November 2003. The submission was released for a thirty-day public comment period that expired on 20 February 2004. Five public comments were received. PIRSA provided a response to the issues raised and amended the submission where necessary.
The submission reports on the South Australian Beach-cast Seagrass and Marine Algae Fishery against the Australian Government Guidelines for the Ecologically Sustainable Management of Fisheries. The DEH assessment considers the submission, associated documents, public comments and PIRSA's response to the comments.
