    AFMA is often asked for comments on offshore activities that may interact with fishing or have an impact on the fishing industry, which include:

    • petroleum/mineral exploration
    • burials at sea
    • sea dumping
    • marine farming development
    • boat scuttling.

    If you would like details or comments on a proposed activity please send the following details to

    • location (coordinates)
    • type
    • nature
    • timing
    • duration.

    For the petroleum industry, we have specific guidelines for AFMA’s preferred process for consultation and information about petroleum offshore activities.
