PFAOcean Hauling change to Estuary General Fishing


Fishers working in the New South Wales Estuary General Fishery with mesh netting endorsements are licensed to harvest a range of fish species using mesh nets. The NSW fishing industry is primarily made up of small family businesses that rely on high levels of local knowledge and skills learnt over many generations. These businesses use some of the most environmentally sound technology available, such as world leading by-catch reduction devices, and operate under stringent controls regarding their fishing times, seasons and equipment. The industry is constantly striving to improve its environmental performance and contributes millions of dollars each year to research and compliance programs.
