Cape York special fisheries working group

The Cape York special fisheries working group works closely with key regional stakeholders to:

  • identify new economic pathways through charter fisheries and tourism operations
  • maintain sustainable fisheries in Cape York.

It was established in June 2023.

The 10-person working group is a non-statutory advisory body which provides advice that will be considered alongside advice and information from:

  • Fisheries Queensland
  • Sustainable Fisheries Expert Panel
  • other Government agencies.

Collectively this will inform decisions on the management of our fisheries and best practice fisheries management and implementation of the Queensland Sustainable Fisheries Strategy: 2017–2027.
