Fisheries Management Plans

The Victorian Fisheries Authority prepares and reviews management plans for the recreational, commercial and aquaculture sectors. These plans identify policies and strategies for the ecologically sustainable development of Victoria's fisheries. The development of plans is an open process that includes valuable input from a wide range of stakeholders.
