Portland Aquaculture Fisheries Reserve Management Plan
The Minister for Agriculture declared the Portland Aquaculture Fisheries Reserve Management Plan on 14 September 2006 by publication of Notice of Declaration in the Victoria Gazette.
The Management Plan has been developed in accord with Part 3 of the Fisheries Act 1995. Section 28 of the Act requires a management plan be prepared in respect of a fisheries reserve.
The Management Plan has been developed through a steering committee made up of key stakeholder group representatives, and provides management direction for the Portland Aquaculture Fisheries Reserve for the next three years. The planning process was overseen by the Fisheries Co-Management Council.
