Fisheries resource reallocation policy

This policy delivers on an action under the Sustainable Fisheries Strategy and outlines the key steps and considerations for reallocation of fishery resources.

Fisheries Queensland regularly receives proposals to reallocate access to fisheries resources from one sector to another. The policy sets out the criteria that must be met for any proposal to be considered by government. It also requires any entity proposing reallocation of fisheries resources to demonstrate the benefits to the community, supply sufficient information to demonstrate their case and outline how compensation might be provided.
