Abstract

The report outlines a management plan for the Kimberley Prawn Fishery which operates in Western Australia coastal waters of the Indian Ocean and Timor Sea off the Kimberley coastline lying east of Koolan Island, 123 degrees 45' east longitude and the west of Cape Londonderry, 126 degrees 58' east longitude. This management plan proposes a set of options to be offered to the Northern Prawn Fishery Class B and Class C unit holders, with Western Australian Fishing Boat Licences, who are displaced by the compulsory reduction of the Northern Prawn Fishery fleet and to owners of trawlers with access to other fisheries and the Kimberley Prawn Fishery whose boats lose access to all other fisheries except the Kimberley Prawn Fishery.
