Abstract

Integrated Fisheries Management (IFM) is an initiative aimed at addressing the issue of how fish resources in Western Australia should be shared between competing users within the broad context of “Ecologically Sustainable Development”, or ESD, so that they can be managed to a sustainable allowable harvest level. The Minister for Fisheries (Minister) established the Integrated Fisheries Management Allocation Advisory Committee (Allocation Committee), under Section 42 of the Fish Resources Management Act 1994 (FRMA), in 2004 to investigate IFM resource allocation issues and make recommendations to him on optimal resource use.
