Stakeholder meetings

Fisheries Queensland officers will be available at key locations around the state. Appointments are available for one-on-one sessions (or small groups of up to three people) with fishery managers.

Commercial fishers, recreational fishers and other interested community members are all welcome.

Stakeholders can discuss any concerns or queries they may have around the Sustainable Fisheries Strategy, or any other fisheries management issues.

When are appointments available?

Come and talk to us about your views on the crab, line and inshore fisheries. We will be holding face-to-face meetings in September to gather people’s views on:

  • how to break up some of our fisheries (eg by species or regions) so they are more manageable
  • ideas for reform (eg quota, effort units, bag limits etc)
  • vessel tracking to ensure the rules will work for their fishery, and
  • new management arrangements for the Hammerhead shark.

Session locations:

  • Townsville - Wednesday 6 September (from 9.00am - 3.30pm)
  • Gladstone - Thursday 14 September
  • Cairns - Monday 25 September

Other opportunities will be available later in 2017, so keep an eye out for future announcements.

How do I book an appointment?

Sessions will be allocated in thirty minute slots which must be pre-booked via the available links. Only one session can be selected by any one stakeholder.
