Considerations for the implementation of Western rock lobster sectoral allocations.
Department of Fisheries Western Australia
This paper discusses the Western rock lobster allocation process. The Minister for Fisheries has determined that the allocation for sectors in the western rock lobster fishery after reserving one tonne for the customary sector shall be 95 per cent commercial and five per cent recreational. The notional Sustainable Harvest Level (SHL) for rock lobster is expressed as a range, depending on the status of the stock rather than a specific quantitative limit.
