About the assessment report
The Queensland Department of Primary Industries and Fisheries (DPI&F) has submitted a document for assessment under Part 13A of the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999 (EPBC Act). The draft document Ecological Assessment - Queensland Eel Fishery (the submission) was received by the Department of the Environment and Heritage (DEH) in November 2002 after a period of discussion between DPI&F and DEH, during which preliminary drafts were refined. The submission was released for a thirty-day public comment period that expired on 23 December 2002. Six public comments were received and DPI&F provided a response to the issues raised. Some changes were made to the submission as a result of public comment. A final submission for assessment was received in February 2003.
