Fisheries Adjustment Assistance Package
Consistent with the commitment for a more competitive and sustainable fisheries sector, the Australian Government will review the management plans for the Commonwealth marine reserves announced in November 2012. The government will be appointing a scientific review panel and bioregional advisory panels to provide advice on future marine reserve management arrangements.
As a result of the review, the Fisheries Adjustment Assistance Package has been placed on hold while the review and management planning processes are undertaken.
