Social and Economic Indicators

Social and Economic Indicators

Tasmania’s fisheries are important to a range of users and to the community for the social and economic benefits they generate. Taking account of these social and economic interests is an objective of the Living Marine Resources Management Act 1995 and it is an important part of achieving broad sustainability for a fishery.

IMAS undertakes assessment of economic and social indicators for each fishery through ongoing monitoring activity and as part of research projects.
