South Australian Beach-cast Marine Algae Fishery permit up for renewal

The current export permit for the South Australian Beach-cast Marine Algae Fishery is up for renewal to the Federal Department of Agriculture, Water and the Environment. This is the same process that FoSSE was involved in in 2014 – 16, which resulted in FoSSE taking the DEW to the Administrative Appeals Tribunal in order to achieve protection for migratory shorebirds. At the time FOSSE was successful in achieving much more protection for both migratory and resident shorebirds than was proposed in the original Assessment but there are still matters that are cause for concern that will be raised in the upcoming commentary period.

Please get in contact with Maureen Christie directly or through the contact us form if you wish to be involved in the group that formally comment on the matter.
