The Department of Primary Industries and Fisheries Management Paper "Identification of Contemporary Issues and Risks Associated with the Northern Territory Mud Crab Fishery" is out for public comment until the 20 January 2014.
The paper provides an opportunity to contribute to the development of new management arrangements for one of the Territory’s most important fisheries. The paper is intended to assist the Department of Primary Industries and Fisheries in documenting the opinions of the public in relation to the harvest of mud crabs in the Northern Territory in preparation for a comprehensive review of the fishery.
NTSC is preparing a submission on the proposed management arrangements, with input from industry.
