Objectives

1. Estimate the contribution to the Australian (i.e. national) economy of total commercial fisheries and aquaculture activity using standard measures of economic contribution

2. Estimate the contribution to each State/Territory's economy of commercial fisheries and aquaculture activity using standard measures of economic contribution

3. Develop a robust and nationally-consistent framework to support data collection and estimation of contributions (and, potentially, impact) in the future
