Introduction to Fisheries Adjustment

Introduction to Fisheries Adjustment

Introduction to Fisheries Adjustment

This course is designed for fisheries policy officers and entry-to-mid‐level managers from State and Commonwealth government agencies.

It examines the planning and outcomes of Australian fishery adjustment programs, and explores issues in fishing rights, legislation, and the equitability of economically efficient fishery adjustments.

Sourcing funds and making fair payments to fishers have been critical strategic issues for management and industry.

The course focuses on the issues you will face while implementing fishery adjustment programs, and guide you through the challenging decisions and administrative measures you need to provide integrity in this complex policy area.

You will review a range of traditional fishery licence adjustment regimes to identify best practice. Interviews with staff who have been involved in past fishery adjustments, including an experienced fisher, add to the perspectives presented to participants. 

Developments in fishery adjustment are also coming from new environmental marine spatial adjustment initiatives and these changes are highlighted for their potential impact on established fishery adjustment practice.
