The South East Management Advisory Committee is the overarching committee that provides management advice to AFMA for the following fisheries:

  • Southern and Eastern Scalefish and Shark Fishery (including the Gillnet Hook and Trap Sector and the South Eastern Trawl Sector)
  • Small Pelagic Fishery
  • Southern Squid Jig Fishery

SEMAC provides management advice to the AFMA Commission and AFMA management on efficient and cost effective fisheries management, and provides an avenue for consultation between industry, policy, conservation, state and territory governments, recreational and research fields.

SEMAC receives scientific advice from the Southern and Eastern Scalefish and Shark Fishery Resource Assessment group, Squid Resource Assessment Group, Small Pelagic Fishery Resource Assessment Group and Stakeholder Forums, South East Resource Assessment Group and the Shark Resource Assessment Group. The committee uses this scientific advice to inform their management advice.
