By Caleb Gardner


The CRC has developed the Future Harvest theme business plan to deliver the following outcomes:

1. Fisheries management delivering maximum benefit from the resource while maintaining stocks above sustainability indicators

2. Novel management strategies in place which increase economic yield from our fisheries

3. The technical efficiency of our fishing fleet will be improved to respond to rising costs.


Through the following strategies:

1. Field / pilot trials of novel or alternative management systems

2. Bioeconomic modelling of specific harvest strategies allowing stakeholders to select optimal fisheries management and harvest systems

3. Manage change and promote implementation of results in fisheries management and business structures

4. Improve technical aspects and efficiency of fishing operations

5. Foster better management and a progressive and collaborative culture by educating and training CRC participants and theme management
