Call for public comment on Regulatory Impact Statement draft Inland Fisheries Regulations 2019

The Tasmanian Government is committed to providing for industry and community involvement in the development of policy. We are seeking your input on the draft Inland Fisheries Regulations 2019.

A Regulatory Impact Statement (RIS) has been prepared in accordance with Schedule 2 of the Subordinate Legislation Act 1992.  The purpose of this RIS is to describe and examine the likely impact of the draft Inland Fisheries Regulations 2019 on licence and registration holders in the commercial fisheries sector. The recreational regulations do not form a part of the RIS due to recent consultation on recreational regulations through the development of the Tasmanian Inland Recreational Fishery Management Plan 2018-28.

Submissions are invited on any aspect of this RIS and accompanying draft Inland Fisheries Regulations 2019. Comment is especially invited on the potential costs and benefits of the draft regulations for business and other sectors of the community.

Submissions will be considered and copies provided to the Subordinate Legislation Review Committee of the Tasmanian Parliament before the regulations are made. Submissions must be in writing and forwarded to:

Director of Inland Fisheries 
PO Box 575 New Norfolk, Tasmania, 7140 
Submissions may also be emailed to: 

Submissions must be received by 5.00 p.m. Tuesday 15 October 2019
