A Seal & Fishery Interaction Management Strategy
This Strategy has been developed by the Marine and Marine Industries Council (MMIC) in response to concerns about the interaction between seals and the fishing and aquaculture industries. The accompanying Background Report discusses the issues considered during the development of the Strategy.
MMIC was established by the (then) Minister for Primary Industries, Water and Environment, the Hon David Llewellyn, in 1999. Its membership represents a range of key stakeholders who have individual expertise in areas such as marine conservation, management and utilisation. The Minister referred the problem of seal interactions with fishing and fish farming to the Council in September 2000.
The Strategy was prepared by a DPIWE Project Team under direction from MMIC.
