New fisheries reporting requirements: A discussion with Mark Alexander

New fisheries reporting requirements: A discussion with Mark Alexander

July 22, 2021

Our thanks to Mark Alexander for his time and candid discussion regarding the fisheries reporting requirements facing commercial fishers from 1 September.

His consideration of moving his business to New South Wales is an indictment on the fisheries management regime in this State.

More importantly, if Fisheries Queensland is looking for reasons why industry are less and less willing to engage on fisheries management issues - this industry do not have trust or faith in those individuals managing our fisheries resources. All you need to do is listen to Mark during this discussion to truly understand the level of frustration and stress being felt across this industry.

Thanks to Brett Fuchs for sharing his insights with the Association.  This podcast is a reminder of the depth of feeling and the utter lack of trust in the so-called reform process and those leading that reform.

If you want to understand why industry has lost faith in Fisheries Queensland and the reform process, please listen to this podcast.

The Association is producing content to provide the community and industry an alternative view to those of Fisheries Queensland and the State Government.

So-called fisheries reform from a trawl fishery perspective: A discussion with Elaine Lewthwaite

So-called fisheries reform from a trawl fishery perspective: A discussion with Elaine Lewthwaite

June 20, 2021
Elaine Lewthwaite, a partner in a Queensland Trawl business provides some valuable insights into how the soc-called reform process has missed the mark. Human resources being a key lost opportunity.
 
Her observation that industry has been marginalized at the cost of the people that work to provide seafood to Queenslanders, Australians and international visitors. Communication and trust are lacking and a significant rebuilding of relationships need to occur – fear and anxiety are no way to manage commercial fisheries.

Episode #02: QSIA - AMSA Podcast - Certificate of Operation

Episode #02: QSIA - AMSA Podcast - Certificate of Operation

June 16, 2021

Now is the time to renew your AMSA Certificates of Operation

In the next few months, most 5-year certificates of operation for Queensland fishing vessels will be due for renewal.  To renew your Certificate of Operation:

  • If you have more than one vessel and separate certificates for each vessel – consider consolidating all your vessels onto a single certificate of operation when you make your renewal. This will save you money as the single 5-year certificate will cost $200 for all your boats, rather than $200 for each boat on separate certificates.  Where possible, please provide a copy of all the current certificates with your application.
  • If you would like to renew your certificate, can provide a copy of the current certificate and do not want to make any changes, you can apply using the following: AMSA Form 553
  • If you would like to renew your certificate, are unable to provide a copy of the current certificate,  please apply using AMSA Form 504 and select the new a certificate option.

If you want to make changes or consolidate all your vessels into a single certificate you will need to select the option to ‘make a change’ or ‘apply for a new certificate’ on the AMSA form 504.

If you need any further help, call AMSA Connect on 1800 627 484, 8am-7pm weekdays.

Please ensure you renew your certificates on time or a Temporary Operations permission will be required to continue operating.

Thanks for joining us on the podcast and if you have any questions please send them to eo@qsia.com.au or Mick.Bishop@amsa.gov.au.
