Fish habitat fact sheets provide simple, easy to understand explanations of various topics related to fish habitat management issues. The fact sheets are split up into various themes that relate to the development triggers assessed by DAF. These facts sheets help to maintain state-wide consistency of policy interpretations for assessing development proposals.

Use of the fact sheets is not compulsory and is intended to clarify Fisheries policy and management objectives.

Please note: Declared fish habitat areas (FHAs) and related policies are managed by the Department of Environment and Science.
