Western Australia’s commercial fisheries are managed in accordance with the environmental and industry constraints imposed on them. Participation in the industry is kept under control by restricting inputs, such as boat numbers and sizes, fishing gear and the length of the fishing season, and / or outputs, such as the amount of fish which may be caught. Most commercial fisheries are fully exploited meaning that few economical viable stocks are available for development. Most commercial fishing in Western Australia is tightly controlled by restricting entry into the industry and is rigorously managed and monitored. Commercial fisheries are primarily managed in accordance with Management Plans made under the Fisheries Resources Management Act 1994 (WA) (“FRM Act”).
