About the report
In October 2007, the Northern Territory (NT) Department of Primary Industry, Fisheries and Mines provided a submission for further assessment of the NT Spanish Mackerel Fishery under Parts 13 and 13A of the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999 (EPBC Act).
The submission - Northern Territory Spanish Mackerel Fishery Export Exemption Submission, Re-assessment Report - reports against the Australian Government Guidelines for the Ecologically Sustainable Management of Fisheries - 2nd Edition and provides updates on the implementation of recommendations made in the original assessment undertaken by the then Department of the Environment and Heritage in February 2003.
The 2008 Department of the Environment, Water, Heritage and the Arts' assessment report considers the submission and associated documents and provides an assessment against the wildlife trade and protected species provisions of the EPBC Act.
