The 8 Rs: Reform

We want the NSW government to assist with the REFORM of commercial fishing to deliver an efficient, profitable and sustainable industry valued and respected by the community.

  • Support funding for the dignified retirement of excess fishing effort.
  • Negotiate for the removal of inefficient or unsustainable fishing methods, with fair compensation.
  • Work with the commercial fishing industry to optimise the social and community benefits derived from sustainable fishing in every area of the state.
  • Contribute to funding the reallocation of resources and access between all fishing sectors with fair compensation.
  • Work with commercial fishers to better promote the health and wellbeing benefits of eating fresh fish.
