The Hon. C. BONAROS (15:35): It is clear. Further supplementary: will the SARDI report weigh heavily in terms of the recommendations that the minister ultimately adopts?

The Hon. C.M. SCRIVEN (Minister for Primary Industries and Regional Development, Minister for Forest Industries) (15:35): I would always hope that the science has a very significant focus within any decision-making, and I am confident that the Marine Scalefish Fishery Management Advisory Committee, with its diverse membership, will certainly take into account the most up-to-date science.
