Department of Fisheries

The Aquaculture Council of Western Australia (ACWA), is the State's peak aquaculture industry body. It is a member driven organisation working to ensure a profitable future for its members and a viable future for the aquaculture industry. Its goals are:     To promote the Western Australian aquaculture industry to the community and Governments at State and national levels.     To provide an effective communications network for all members and stakeholders.     To influence Government and its departments to ensure an economic and legislative environment that encourages the development of responsible aquaculture enterprise.     To provide quality, cost-effective support and services to members.     To uphold the principles and practice of ecologically sustainable development in all WA aquaculture sectors.
The Department of Fisheries’ primary responsibility is to conserve, sustainably develop and share the use of Western Australia’s aquatic resources and their ecosystems for the benefit of present and future generations. We do this through managing fisheries and aquatic ecosystems, assessment and monitoring of fish stocks, enforcement and education, biosecurity management and licensing commercial and recreational fishing activity, including commercial aquaculture. The department has a dedicated marron page with information about habitat, lifecycle & diet.
