DPI Fisheries Key Highlights and Statistics

This new report series is designed to consolidate information about the work undertaken and outcomes achieved by the NSW Department of Primary Industries’ Fisheries branch. In addition to a brief description of each major area of work and a few key highlights from 2014/15, it provides data on important metrics such as:

  • Fisheries and aquaculture production
  • Status of fish stocks
  • Numbers of threatened species
  • Condition of fish communities
  • Fisheries enhancement work
  • Education and compliance activities
  • Permits/licenses issued
  • Research publications
  • Projects underway and completed

Over time, the report series will allow trend analysis of key performance indicators for fisheries in NSW.

The report also refers readers, where appropriate, to sources of more detailed information including published reports and the branch’s website.
