Management Plan for the Commercial Harvest and Farming of Crocodiles in Western Australia 1 January 2009 – 31 December 2013
About the Management Plan
This management plan relates only to the commercial harvest and farming of saltwater (Crocodylus porosus) and freshwater (C. johnstoni) crocodiles within Western Australia.
This management plan has been developed to satisfy the requirements of the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999 (EPBC Act) and to meet the legislative and other requirements of the Western Australian Government.
The primary goal of the management plan is to ensure that the commercial harvest of crocodiles from the wild is ecologically sustainable. This will be achieved through the application of the best available scientific knowledge, best practice management and monitoring of outcomes to ensure the viability of crocodile populations is not compromised by any action undertaken in accordance with this plan.
