The NSW Lobster Industry Working Group was established following the discontinuation of the Lobster Fishery Management Advisory Committee in 2012. The working group is the key consultative mechanism for Total Allowable Commercial Catch determinations and other policy and operational issues relating to the NSW Lobster Fishery as required.
The working group includes five regional fisher member positions, one recreational member position, one Aboriginal member position, and one conservation member position. The Lobster Fisheries Manager, one DPI Compliance Officer and one DPI Science and Research member will also form part of the group.
The working group operates under Terms of Reference (PDF, 65.66 KB) which set out the structure, role and functions of the working group.
The Deputy Director General, DPI Fisheries is now inviting expressions of interest for membership on the NSW Lobster Industry Working Group
