This section offers conservation news briefs in Australia. The Australian branch of the General Fisheries Commission for the Mediterranean (GFCM) adopted European measures for the harvesting of red corral at no more than 50 meters below. Due to the growing number of some whale species, the International Whaling Commission (IWC) is pushing to allow controlled harvesting, which is still undergoing debate. New Zealand author Peter Pownall became the editor of the "Australian Fisheries" magazine.
