For the period 1 May 2016 to 31 July 2016.
The Australian Fisheries Management Authority collects both logbook data (provided by the operator) and observer data (provided by independent AFMA observers). Weights for both logbook and observer data are estimates only and may differ. Accurate weights are determined using scales once the fish are landed on-shore and it is this verified weight that is deducted from the operator’s quota.
|Game fish species||Weight (kg) retained and discarded||Number caught|
|Thresher sharks (bigeye and common)||3490||32|
|Game fish species||Weight (kg) retained and discarded|
|Shortfin mako||4 animals*|
|Thresher sharks (mixed)||3490|
|Total||363kg and 4 Shortfin mako sharks|
*Mako sharks (Shortfin and Longfin) are recorded in logbooks via a Listed Marine and Threatened Species Form, which record the number of animals not species weight.
