How public acceptability of wild catch fishing influences regulatory decisions (FRDC Project 2012-301)

This collaborative project (Envision Environmental Consulting, Charles Sturt University and Cobalt MRM) developed a detailed understanding of the level of social acceptability for wild catch fishing in Australia, and how public attitudes, values and beliefs about sustainability influence regulatory decisions. Some of which have major resource access ramifications.  The nature of public and interest groups’ influences over regulatory decision making and related processes were analysed, and recommendations made for more effective stakeholder engagement and relationship building to support more sustainable wild catch fisheries.  The final report is available below.
