Trade Publication
The article examines the restrictive regulatory requirements established by the Australian Fisheries Management Authority (AFMA) and its effect on fishermen. It provides a fictitious fishery case of East Coast Tuna and Billfish Fishery (ECTBF) and its efforts to comply with AFMA permit requirements, and guidelines based on the Management Arrangements Booklet for the ECTBF. It is noted that fishermen have attributed the collapse of the fishing industry to the poor management performance in the ECTBF and lack of confidence in the AFMA.
