Proposed marine parks in the Buccaneer Archipelago and surrounds

The Department of Biodiversity, Conservation and Attractions released the draft Buccaneer Archipelago Marine Park Management Plans in December.

Public consultation on this matter is open until Friday 21st of May.

Recfishwest will be in Broome on Thursday 25th of February and Derby on Friday 26th. They plan to meet with key stakeholders in both the Government and private sectors, community organizations and of course, fishers. Please keep an eye out for further communication around opportunities to engage directly with them during this visit.

The initial purpose is to provide the fishing community background to the public consultation process as well as gather a solid understanding from locals about impacts of the proposed parks in their current form.
