2019 call for Research for Torres Strait Fisheries

19 December 2018

The Torres Strait Scientific Advisory Committee (TSSAC) is a Protected Zone Joint Authority advisory body that that guides fisheries related research priorities, and assesses proposals for Torres Strait Fisheries related research each year.  As part of its 2019 funding round, the TSSAC is making its annual public call for research applications to address research priorities identified for potential funding in 2019-20.

Research funding is assessed in two stages by the TSSAC, through pre-proposals, then successful applications will be asked to submit full proposals.

Applicants should address one of the fishery-specific project scopes provided when developing their pre-proposals. These scopes have been developed to meet the immediate research needs for Torres Strait fisheries in 2019-20.

Please note that pre-proposals must be submitted to the TSSAC executive officer at torresstraitresearch [at] afma.gov.au by 5 February, 2019.

Full proposals, if requested, will then be due early May 2019.

Please visit the Research section of the PZJA website for further details on the call for research and how to apply, phone the Australian Fisheries Management Authority Thursday Island office on 07 4069 1990 or email torresstraitresearch [at] afma.gov.au.
