Fisheries Management Paper No. 276
Western Australian Department of Fisheries
Harvest strategies for aquatic resources managed by the Western Australian Department of Fisheries (the Department) are formal documents prepared to support decision-making processes and ensure these processes are consistent with the principles of Ecologically Sustainable Development (ESD; DoF 2002) and Ecosystem Based Fisheries Management (EBFM; DoF 2010; Fletcher et al. 2012). The principles of ESD are reflected within the Pearling legislative framework and the draft Aquatic Resources Management Bill 2015, Clause 9, which will replace the Pearling Act 1990 (PA) once enacted.
