About the report
In June 2007, the Western Australian (WA) Department of Fisheries provided a submission for further assessment of the WA Western Rock Lobster Fishery under Parts 13 and 13A of the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999 (EPBC Act). The submission - Application to the Department of the Environment and Water Resources on the Western Rock Lobster Fishery (June 2007) has been prepared to address the Australian Government Guidelines for the Ecologically Sustainable Management of Fisheries and provides updates on the implementation of recommendations made in the original assessment undertaken by the Department of Environment and Water Resources (DEW) in August 2002. The 2007 DEW assessment report considers the submission and associated documents and provides an assessment against the wildlife trade and protected species provisions of the EPBC Act.
