Conservation Member sought for Resource Assessment Group


Australian Fisheries Management Authority


Canberra, ACT

The Australian Fisheries Management Authority (AFMA) is seeking applications for a vacant Conservation Member position on the Shark Resource Assessment Group (SharkRAG). 

SharkRAG is one of the primary sources of scientific and economic advice that contributes to the management of the Gillnet, Hook and Trap Sector of the Southern and Eastern Scalefish and Shark Fishery.

The RAG provides advice to AFMA and the South East Management Advisory Committee on the status of stocks, sub stocks, species (target and non-target), the impact of shark fishing on the marine environment and the type of information needed for stock assessments. They also evaluate the impact over time of different harvest strategies, stock depletion and recovery rates, confidence levels for fishery assessments, and risks to the success of meeting fishery objectives. Economic factors affecting the fishery are also evaluated and reported on by the group. 

The appointment will be from the date of appointment until 30 June 2022 in line with the remainder of SharkRAG members’ terms of appointment.
