Abstract

Following the Rock Lobster Industry Advisory Committee meeting of the 3 March 1998 the Minister has advised that his position is that there will be no management changes for the 1998/99 season. The purpose of this paper is primarily to provide information explaining management options and issues for consideration of the long term management of the fishery. The paper is divided into three main sections which detail options that have been identified as having the potential to increase the catch value over the next three years. In the first section, an option for enhancing the catch value by transferring lobsters to the off-season is provided. In the second section, options for enhancing the catch value by transferring lobsters within and between seasons are provided. In the third section, options for enhancing the catch value by taking oversize female lobsters are provided.
