PZJA Out of Session decision 30 January 2015
The PZJA Standing Committee recommends that the PZJA:
1.1 AGREES to set the Total Allowable Effort (TAE) in the Torres Strait Prawn Fishery (TSPF) at 9,200 days for the 2015 fishing season.
1.1 NOTES that the proposed TAE is consistent with the TSPF management plan 2009, harvest strategy and PZJA sustainability reference points.
Note: The Queensland Minister for Agriculture Fisheries and Forestry, the Hon. Dr John McVeigh MP was unable to provide a response before the Queensland election was announced on 6 January 2015. The requirement that two of the three PZJA members are needed for a quorum of the PZJA (section 40(3) of the Torres Strait Fisheries Act 1984) was met.
