Register of persons interested in plans of management


The Australian Fisheries Management Authority (AFMA) invites persons and organisations interested in being notified of information about draft management plans to have their names and postal addresses entered, or in the case of existing entries, have their names and postal addresses remain, on a register kept by AFMA for such purposes. Management plans are developed under section 17 of the Fisheries Management Act 1991.

Persons or organisations wishing to accept this invitation to register their interest should do so in writing.  Acceptances are to be sent to:

AFMA Licensing

PO Box 7051

Canberra BC                                        OR                          info@afma.gov.au                   
Canberra ACT 2610

The name and postal address of the person or organisation registering their interest must be included in the acceptance. Persons or organisations accepting this invitation may specify whether they wish to be notified about all or specific plans of management. For persons and organisations, in existence on the publication of this notice, acceptances must be given within one month after the publication date.  In any other case, acceptances must be given within 12 months after the publication of this notice. 

Any personal information collected by AFMA for the purpose of maintaining the register is managed in accordance with AFMA’s obligations under the Privacy Act 1988 and the Australian Privacy Principles.
