Abstract

Harvest strategies for aquatic resources managed by the Western Australian Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development (DPIRD) Fisheries Division (Fisheries) are formal documents that are prepared based on a formal policy (Department of Fisheries 2015a) to support the decision-making processes and ensure these processes are consistent with the principles of Ecologically Sustainable Development (ESD; Fletcher 2002) and Ecosystem Based Fisheries Management (EBFM; Fletcher et al. 2010). The objectives of ESD are reflected in the objects of the Fish Resources Management Act 1994 (FRMA), Section 3, and the Aquatic Resources Management Act 2016 (ARMA), Clause 9, which will replace the FRMA once enacted.
