Abstract or Summary
  • In 2009 a network of 19 multiple-use Marine Parks was created in State waters under the South Australian Marine Parks Act 2007.  Section 21 of the Act contains compensation provisions where rights of fishing licence holders are affected by the creation of marine parks. Management plans and zoning regulations were established in 2012 and are timed for implementation in October 2014.  The likely displacement impacts on the commercial fishing industry were estimated by the South Australian Research and Development Institute, the South Australian Government research agency, using available commercial fishing data provided by fishers and held by The Department of Primary Industries and Regions, South Australia. In order to manage any potential adverse impacts on fisheries management, the Government developed and implemented a voluntary catch/effort reduction program for the South Australian commercial fishing and charter boat sectors.  The objective of the program was to purchase, using market mechanisms, fishing entitlements with sufficient catch/effort history to offset the estimated displacement. The program criteria developed with the assistance of independent expertise ensured that catch/effort was effectively removed (including spatial considerations), that public funds were spent efficiently and appropriately and that future fisheries management impacts were minimised. The criteria developed and process followed contributed to willing participation by industry and successful program implementation. Whole licences and catch/effort units were surrendered through the program and the catch/effort reduction was completed for 5 sectors out of 6 affected sectors in December 2013. The approach taken, the process involved, the outcomes and fisheries management considerations involved are discussed.
