|Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander commercial fishing development policy||582.29 KB|
Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities continue to express a desire to have more economic opportunities around fishing, particularly in their own sea country.
This revised policy aims to support economic development opportunities for Indigenous peoples and communities by providing pathways for Indigenous peoples and communities to enter or take part in fishing-related businesses. This policy sets overarching principles, including setting aside an access allocation (Indigenous commercial allocation) for economic development opportunities.
This policy does not apply to traditional fishing or native title fishing rights.
