Guidelines for the applications for the use of foreign fishing vessels in the Australian fishing zone (PDF, 1 MB)

These guidelines were endorsed by the Australian Fisheries  Council in July 1989. The issue of foreign fishing will be addressed further in the Government’s policy statement on management  of  Commonwealth  fisheries to be issued in late 1989.

The guidelines have been prepared to provide advice on Government policy and procedures which apply to fishing enterprises interested in using foreign fishing vessels to undertake any fishing activity in the Australian fishing zone (AFZ).
