Pink snapper commercial fishing

Pink snapper supports important commercial fisheries across Western Australia, including the Gascoyne Demersal Scalefish Managed Fishery, the West Coast Demersal Scalefish (Interim) Managed Fishery, the South Coast Line and Fish Trap Managed Fishery and the Temperate Demersal Gillnet and Demersal Longline Fisheries.

Commercial fishing arrangements for these fisheries can be found online in their management plans and Vessel Monitoring System approved directions: 

The latest catch, stock status, broader ecosystem impacts and social and economic outcomes for these fisheries can be found in the annual Status reports of the fisheries and aquatic resources of Western Australia. This publication should be read in conjunction with our Annual Report.
