Queensland government will deliver on fishing rights by rezoning the Northern Territory to give greater access to the industry.
The legislation is the culmination of a five-year process aimed at bringing the Northern Territory into the mainstream of fishing.
But before it can become law, federal ministers must go through a process of consultation, which the government says will start next month.
The NT government and the Department of the Environment will jointly conduct a series of public consultation meetings.
Fisheries Minister Stewart바카라 게임 Regan said the government wants the Northern Territory to be a major fishing hub.
“Our goal is to provide industry with the means and access to a strong base from which to compete to achieve the economic and environmental benefits of a successful Northern Territory fishing industry,” Mr Regan said.
“The most important issue before the NT Government will be to be sure we have a clear understanding of the resources available to the industry and to allow the industry to fully utilise the region and our industry.”
Mr Regan said the first stage of the project would be to determine the best methods of managing the region’s resource base.
The Northern Territory will hold a number of open meetings, and in the spring of 2016, federal Minister for Indigenous and Northern Affairs Greg Hunt will hold the first community meeting of its kind in the territory, which also includes the First Nations, Metairie and the Northern Rivers and Waters.
Mr Hunt will deliver the first public consultation on the project.
Mr Regan said the government was 넷마블 바카라committed to delivering on its fisheries plans.
“The next steps for the Northern Territory Government and its partners are a period of dialogue around these plans and how best to manage the region in the future,” he said.
The Northern Territory Premier and Minister for Indigenous Affairs, Bronwyn솔레 어 카지노 Bishop, said the Northern Territory would work closely with the Department of Environment and Territories to develop a regional fishing plan.
“The future of the Northern Territory fishing industry is critical to our economy and our communities, and there will be significant risks for regional and federal fishing opportunities should the Northern Territory and the NT government find it necessary to rezone,” Ms Bishop said.
In October 2016, the NT Government confirmed the Northern Territory would be part of the Northern Climate Change Partnership (NCCP), which allows commercial companies to have up to 15% of Australian catch taken to supply regional regions such as New England, Victoria and South Australia.
