About the assessment report

The Northern Territory (NT) Department of Business, Industry and Resource Development (DBIRD) 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 Assessing the Ecological Sustainability of the Northern Territory Aquarium Fishery (the submission) was received by the Department of the Environment and Heritage (DEH) in April 2005. The submission was released for a thirty-day public comment period that expired on 23 May 2005. Three public comments were received. DBIRD provided a response to the issues raised, but no changes were made to the submission as a result of public comment.

The submission reports on the NT Aquarium Fishery against the Australian Government Guidelines for the Ecologically Sustainable Management of Fisheries. The DEH assessment considers the submission, associated documents, public comments and DBIRD's response to the comments.
