Trawling the net just got easier
Reinforcing its commitment to improved services for Commonwealth fishers, the Australian Fisheries Management Authority (AFMA) has today launched its new website with a range of new information and services relating to Australia’s Commonwealth fisheries.
AFMA’s Managing Director, Richard McLoughlin, said the new site will make it easier for Commonwealth fishers do business with AFMA and help promote AFMA’s role to the wider community as the agency responsible for the sustainable management of Australia’s Commonwealth fisheries.
“One of the many exciting services offered by the new AFMA website is a QUOTABOARD service for Commonwealth fishers to privately browse or advertise quota, Statutory Fishing Rights or permits to buy, sell or lease,” said Mr McLoughlin.
“An improved QUOTAVIEW service is also now available for Commonwealth fishers to run tailored reports on their current quota status. Fishers can view their catch figures and how they are tracking against their quota holdings.
“Anyone with an interest in Commonwealth fisheries issues can now also join our new online subscriptions service to receive AFMA publications such as the fortnightly AFMA Update newsletter, quarterly Fishing Future magazine, media releases and other up to date information.
“The new website features user-friendly design and better navigation, as well as the latest fisheries news and information,” said Mr McLoughlin.
