Legislative Council: Tuesday, November 15, 2022


Snapper Fishery

The Hon. C. BONAROS (15:34): Further supplementary: will any such decision be based on the advice of the SARDI report or the recommendations of the Marine Scalefish Fishery Management Advisory Committee?

The Hon. C.M. SCRIVEN (Minister for Primary Industries and Regional Development, Minister for Forest Industries) (15:35): This may not be what the honourable member intended, but it sounds as though it is one thing or the other. They are all part of the input into the decision-making. So the snapper stock assessment report, prepared by SARDI, is information that is fed into the MSFMAC, and then they provide recommendations. I hope that is clear. If there is some part of the question that I have misunderstood, happy to obviously answer a further question.
