Bycatch and Discarding Workplans are developed in consultation with industry and research partners to find practical and affordable solutions to minimising bycatch and the discarding of target species.
These fishery specific workplans focus on ‘high risk’ bycatch and threatened, endangered and protected species identified though the ecological risk assessment process and in accordance with the AFMA Bycatch Strategy: Mitigating protected species interactions and general bycatch 2017-2022 (PDF, 593KB)
