Monitoring our fisheries

The future of profitable commercial and enjoyable recreational fisheries relies on our natural resources being used in a sustainable way. This requires keeping a close eye on fish stocks and the performance of management arrangements for each fishery. By routinely collecting information from commercial and recreational fisheries using a range of monitoring programs, and assessing that information, we can make objective decisions to ensure the future of our resources.
