Queensland Sea Cucumber Fishery (East Coast)

AMSA provided a submission on the Queensland Department of Agriculture and Fisheries (DAF) application for Wildlife Trade Operation (WTO) accreditation for the Queensland Sea Cucumber Fishery (East Coast) (QSCF) subject to the conditions of approval under the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999 on 6 September 2021.

AMSA welcomes the careful assessment of the Queensland Sea Cucumber Fishery (East Coast) (QSCF) under the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999 (EPBC) because this fishery harvests CITES II listed teatfish species (Holothuria whitmaei and H. fuscogilva) without a non-detriment finding (NDF). AMSA made nine recommendations in its submission.
