About the assessment report

The Queensland Department of Primary Industries 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 the Rocky Reef Fin Fish Fishery (the submission) was received by the Department of the Environment and Heritage (DEH) in September 2004. The submission was released for a thirty-day public comment period that expired on 22 October 2004. Three public comments were received and DPI&F provided a response to the issues raised.

The submission reports on the Queensland Rocky Reef Fin Fish Fishery (RRFF) 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.
