New South Wales

Total Allowable Catch

Commercial fishing of the species in NSW is controlled through a quota management system. A Total Allowable Commercial Catch (TACC) is set each year by the statutory and independent Total Allowable Catch Setting and Review Committee. The TACC is proportionately allocated to shareholders on the basis of their shareholding in the fishery.

The fishery has had a total of 3,454 shares since 2003-04, with the quota attached to each share determined by the TACC divided by the total share.
