4. Role of industry members

Industry Members on AFMA committees are appointed on the basis of their individual expertise, knowledge and experience. Importantly, Industry Members are not appointed as representatives of any particular interest group or sector.

The role of Industry Members on AFMA committees is to:

  1. contribute knowledge of, and experience in, both the particular fishery and the fishing industry generally to committee deliberations
  2. contribute fisheries expertise to achieve the best management of the fishery
  3. regularly report to other operators in the fishery on the committee’s activities, including the issues being dealt with and the possible solutions being considered.
