Fishery working groups

Fishery working groups are a priority action under the Sustainable Fisheries Strategy. Each working group will provide advice to Fisheries Queensland on the operational aspects of the management of a particular fishery. The initial focus will be advice on the development of a harvest strategy for the fishery.

Working groups are advisory only and will not be decision-making bodies. Working groups will be made up of a range of stakeholders – commercial and recreational fishers, charter operators, seafood marketers and processors and people with conservation experience.

Membership of the working groups is established through an expression of interest process, read the frequently asked questions (FAQ).
