Need

Provides the opportunity to showcase the management arrangements in the Spencer Gulf Prawn Fishery (SGPF) and expand the knowledge base of the applicant in relation to contemporary management arrangements in fisheries globally.

As the Fishery Manager of the SGPF Mr Shanks has a strong personal interest in the future sustainability of the SGPF. He has implemented management arrangements in the SGPF that now permit Officers of the SGWCPFA to set through a legal instrument the area and timing that fishing is undertaken over. This is the only example in Australia where management arrangements permitting industry to self-regulate have been implemented.

The experience and knowledge associated with explaining and seeking views on the management arrangements implemented in the SGPF is invaluable to PIRSA and the SGWCPFA.

Objectives

1. 1. Oral presentation on the delegated Ministerial powers provided to Officers of the Spencer Gulf West Coast Prawn Fishermen’s Association to set short term management arrangements in the SGPF.2. To increase the applicant’s knowledge and understanding of fisheries management arrangements applied throughout the globe.
