Australia should ban super trawlers and other fishing methodologies with a history of extensive marine biodiversity and fishery destruction.
Australian fisheries management legislation must be updated to ensure transparency and access to information for all levels and processes of fisheries and marine resource management.
We need increased objectivity and fairness in the resourcing of all marine research and management, including fisheries.
It must be legislated that true ecosystems-based and precautionary approaches to fisheries management are implemented.
Fisheries must be managed to ensure that ecological processes are maintained and fish populations are managed sustainably
