Draft roadmap to 100% ownership of Torres Strait Fisheries

On 9 April 2014, the PZJA acknowledged and supported the aspirations of 100 per cent ownership of Torres Strait commercial fisheries by Torres Strait Islander and Aboriginal Traditional Owners. The PZJA also acknowledged and recognised the rights of existing non-traditional fishers in the Torres Strait.

A Roadmap setting out the priorities and strategies to move towards the 100 percent ownership aspiration has been drafted, and the PZJA are seeking comments on the draft from communities and other stakeholders.
