The NSW Fisheries Scientific Committee (FSC), established under Part 7A of the Fisheries Management Act 1994, has made a proposed determination to list the White's Seahorse (Hippocampus whitei) as an endangered species.

The FSC reviewed information and found that the species is facing a very high risk of extinction in NSW in the near future, as determined in accordance with criteria prescribed by the Fisheries Management (General) Regulation 2010.

Please visit the Fisheries Scientific Committee website at the link below to view the proposed determination and to find information about how to make a submission.

You can also view the proposed determination at DPI Fisheries Head Office and at District Fisheries Offices in NSW.
