Vessel Tracking: A conversation with Michelle Jensen, Mark Cook and Eric Perez

Vessel Tracking: A conversation with Michelle Jensen, Mark Cook and Eric Perez

June 1, 2022

Thanks for joining us in the ongoing, industry conversation regarding vessel tracking and its implementation.

This podcast is a conversation amongst commercial fishing members of the vessel tracking working group - Michelle Jensen (commercial fisher), Mark Cook (commercial fisher and representative for the Fishermens Portal Inc) and myself (QSIA representative).

Background documents

1) Fisheries Queensland correspondence to vessel tracking working group members.

2) Response to requests - the following paragraph is sourced from page 3 of the Attachment 1 - Responses to requests (updated 17.5.2022):

Fisheries Queensland has not been able to significantly demonstrate that the Spot Trace and Rockfleet units are not fit for purpose, as indicated by some industry members. Whilst Fisheries Queensland acknowledged the unit reliability concerns raised by industry members in the working group, Fisheries Queensland has also heard positives about the units from other industry members.

Panel Discussion - Queensland Spanish Mackerel fishery

Panel Discussion - Queensland Spanish Mackerel fishery

April 30, 2022
We have 6 days to provide your feedback on management options proposed by Fisheries Queensland for the Spanish Mackerel (SM) fishery. After reading responses from my members, speaking to other stakeholders and the views shared in today’s podcast please keep the following in mind:
* The science, the driver of our fisheries management is flawed. Please listen to the podcast and the rational provided for why the science is fundamentally flawed.
* The State Government will not go back to first principles and review the modelling - you have to ask why?
* The consultation is inconsistent with best practice: (1) Fisheries Queensland have held invitation only meetings, (2) for some reason there is no email address to submit views and (3) there seems to be no willingness to review the science.
 
So why listen to the podcast? My guests today are members of the SM working group and a charter fishery member who left the group.
 
I would like to thank Richard Gilmore, Peter Stevens, Rob Drane and Gary Powis for helping me produce the podcast.
 
Some key themes from the discussion: (1) the SM working group had no role in developing the stock assessment, (2) the SM working group members brings a massive knowledge base that has largely been ignored (despite calls from working group members to slow down and reconsider the management options proposed by Fisheries Queensland) and (3) there is agreement across the commercial, recreational and charter sectors that there is something very wrong with the science.
 
Again, the submission closing date is 5 pm, Thursday 5 May 2022.
