At the Annual Management Meeting of the Shark Bay Snapper Limited Entry Fishery held on 22 July 1994 industry put forward a proposal that supplementary and non-transferable quota that was "lost" to the fishery when a licence holding non-transferable quota was transferred should be retained by the Fisheries Department and leased back to licence holders on an annual basis. As a result of this proposal and the fact that the management arrangements for the fishery are extremely complex and in need of simplification, the Minster for Fisheries approved the establishment of a Working Group to examine the lease-back proposal and other long-term management strategies for the fishery.
