Linking shares to access provides fishers with a stronger property right and the opportunity to grow their business with greater certainty around the value of their investment.
Since 1 December 2017, when share linkages and rules commenced for most share classes, fact sheets have been available detailing the new arrangements.
For share classes that moved to catch or effort quota management in 2019, the fact sheets were updated to explain the rules that apply (such as real time reporting arrangements). For other share classes, they explain existing arrangements as well as some rules that changed once new quotas commenced (such as catch limits for quota managed species).
