Keywords: Western Rock Lobster, TACCs, quota, economic yield, Western Australian Department of Fisheries

Summary: This report outlines a preferred pathway for the Western Rock Lobster Council (WRLC; Council) and the Director General (CEO) of the Western Australian Department of Fisheries to advise the Minister in determining the method to be used in calculating the Total Allowable Catch (TAC) and ultimately the commercial catch (TACC) for the Western Rock Lobster Fishery within the context of new legislation; the Aquatic Resources Management Bill 2015, which is currently before the Western Australian Parliament. This includes continuing with the current practice of referral by the decision maker to the WRLC for advice on management decisions. A large part of the advice and recommendations provided focus on issues of governance for the WRLC in advising on TACC, shifting the focus to a longer time horizon in advising on TACC, bringing increased expertise to the table through a subcommittee reporting to the Council and the appointment of a market analyst to provide evidence based advice and information through trade, market and economic analyses.
