Australian Fisheries Statistics reports are designed to meet the needs of the fishing industry and fisheries managers, policy makers and researchers. The Australian Bureau of Agricultural and Resource Economics and Sciences (ABARES) undertakes the analysis of all the fisheries data to produce the reports.
These reports contain data on the volume and value of production from state and Commonwealth fisheries, and on the volume and value of Australian fisheries trade, by destination, source and product, for the three years preceding; the report. The reports also include profiles for a number of Australian fisheries, including the recreational sector.
The full series of Australian Fisheries Statistics reports is available on the ABARES website
