Fishery status reports 2013-14

Fishery status reports 2013-14 provides an independent evaluation of the biological, economic and environmental status of fish stocks managed solely or jointly by the Australian Government.

This 19th edition of the Fishery status reports covers the biological status of 93 fish stocks across 21 fisheries. The biological status of stocks managed solely or jointly by the Australian Government improved overall in 2013, compared with previous years. It is the first year since 2006 that no stocks managed solely by the Australian Government have been classified as subject to overfishing. However, this improvement in overall status has been offset by increased uncertainty surrounding the fishing mortality status of some economically important Australian Government-managed stocks, and an increase in the number of stocks managed jointly by the Australian Government that are classified as subject to overfishing and/or overfished.

The total gross value of production (GVP) of Commonwealth fisheries in 2012-13 was $319.7 million, which is about 13 per cent of Australia's total fisheries and aquaculture GVP of $2.4 billion.

The Fishery status reports form part of a suite of ABARES publications that aim to provide a comprehensive and multidimensional account of the trends and outlook for Australian fisheries. The Australian fisheries statistics reports provide annual updates of fisheries production and trade data. Detailed analysis of the net economic returns of selected Commonwealth fisheries is provided in the annual Australian fisheries economic indicators report .
