Fisheries Research & Development Corporation - Research & Development Funding - Research Grant

What data how? Empowerig and engaging industry to ensure the needs of contemporary fisheries data are achieved

Indicative Funding
$121,785 over 3 years
Summary
Traditionally fishers collected data about their fishing activities that was used to ensure sustainable fishing. However the contemporary uses of fishers data are much more diverse and include ecological assessments, impacts assessments, and third party accreditation interests. These varied uses mean that the types of data and methods of data collection need to be improved. Further, many fishers have many proactive ideas about how data collection and management can be improved and streamlined for efficiency. This project will explore these options.

Australian Fisheries Management Authority - Grant

Defining the status of Torres Strait Spanish mackerel to inform future fisheries allocation and sustainable fishing

Indicative Funding
$223,264 over 3 years
Summary
Spanish mackerel is susceptible to overfishing because of an obligate transient aggregating behaviour Although this behaviour can allow fisheries to operate with economic efficiency harvesting large numbers of fish in short periods of time, transient aggregating species may also be prone to depletion. The Spanish mackerel fishery in the Torres Straits is considered fully fished, though has a long history of production for both Torres Strait Islanders and commercial non-Islander fishers. There is a current need to revisit the stock assessment as well as better understand the movement and aggregating characteristics of Spanish mackerel within the major TS fishing grounds around Bramble Cay and Ugar and Erub Islands.

Fisheries Research & Development Corporation - Annual Competitive Round

Adapt or fail: Risk management and business resilience in Queensland commercial fisheries

Indicative Funding
$350,000 over 2 years
Summary
Change is inevitable, whether it be management, environmental, or economic change. Improving how industries cope with and adapt to change becomes increasingly important as rates and cumulative impacts of change escalate. In relation to commercial fishing, some operators are better able to cope with, and adapt to change than others due to their own capacity or their business structure. This project aims to explore adaptation options for Queensland commercial fisheries within different business typologies, and document common constraints influencing uptake of those options. This information aims to increase the ability of the industry to adapt to any change.
