AFMA-managed fisheries are acknowledged as sustainable
Achieved by: a fully developed and integrated Ecological Risk Assessment (ERA)/Ecological Risk Management (ERM) system, supported by high quality government policy and science that is publicly available.
Fisheries governance is efficient and effective
Achieved by: employing modern technology to deliver stakeholder self-service, and making the fishing industry accountable as individuals and groups (e.g. co-management).
Fisheries regulation is focused on ‘harms’
Achieved by: removing unnecessary regulation and making it easy to comply, backed by a proportionate penalties regime and incentives that reward compliant operators.
Stakeholders are confident in AFMA
Achieved by: alignment of AFMA and stakeholder expectations through the use of broad engagement systems and shared objectives.
In 2019-20 AFMA successfully delivered outcomes across all four of its goals as depicted in the table below. Overall, we either exceeded, fully achieved or substantially achieved 86 per cent of our targets (i.e. 12 out of 14 performance measures). Good progress was made toward meeting 1 out of 14 targets where we partly met the criteria and limited progress was made towards meeting 1 out of 14 targets where we did not meet the target. Detailed analysis is provided on pages 14 to 32.
