Published:

SIA CEO Jane Lovell

Seafood Industry Australia (SIA), the national peak-body representing Australia’s commercial fishing industry, is delighted that for the sixth consecutive year our solely Commonwealth managed fisheries are in great shape and being fished sustainably.

The release of the Australian Bureau of Agricultural and Resource Economics and Sciences (ABARES) ‘Fishery status reports 2019’ highlights the quality of Australia’s Commonwealth fisheries management.

“This is great news and is unprecedented internationally,” SIA CEO Jane Lovell said.

“The ‘Fishery status reports 2019’ provides an evaluation of 96 Australian commercial fish stocks.

“This positive report card given for the sixth consecutive year to Australia’s solely Commonwealth managed fisheries is the ultimate endorsement that Australia continues to be a leader in world class seafood, and sustainability.

“Australians should be proud of their seafood industry which provides fresh, high-quality seafood, year-round.

“As fishers, our priority is the ocean. We advocate the health, sustainability and future of our ocean. It’s our livelihood and the future livelihood of generations to come.”
