Abstract
  • The South Australian rock lobster fishery is about 2,700 tonnes annual catch and is accessed by commercial, charter and amateur fishers. The commercial sector is managed in two zones, one based on input controls and the other on individual transferable quotas. The commercial sector pays 100% of the costs of research, management and compliance through an annual licence fee. Catching rights are linked to a limited number of pots (16,000), which are freely traded and/or leased within the commercial sector. Amateurs access the fishery by diving, using nets and/or pots and are restricted to 2 pots per person and a daily bag limit of 4 lobster. The amateur fishery is in effect open access, in that any person in South Australia, from interstate and/or overseas can access it. No licence fees are charged for amateur access but people wishing to use pots pay an annual pot registration fee. In June 2001, the then Government announced removal of the limit on total amateur pot registrations and set the amateur share of the fishery at 4.5% of the total catch. The Government also announced that should amateur catch exceed the 4.5% share, then it would enter the market place and lease catch at commercial rates, sufficient to offset the excess amateur catch. Total catch in effect would remain constrained with less being taken by the commercial sector to balance the extra being taken by the amateur sector. An overview and evaluation of this resource sharing mechanism between sectors based on commercial transactions is presented.
