The green paper on fisheries management reform in Queensland (the green paper) was released for public consultation from July to October 2016. The green paper outlined where we are now, where we want to be, and how we can get there.
The green paper also represented the government’s response to the independent review of fisheries management in Queensland conducted by MRAG Asia Pacific (the MRAG review).
More than 11,800 responses were received. The overwhelming message was that all stakeholders wanted reform in the way we manage fisheries.

Feedback on the green paper has helped shape the Queensland Sustainable Fisheries Strategy 2017−2027, which sets out the government’s reform agenda for the next 10 years.
