Fisheries Law in Australia provides an analysis of the many and varied laws governing fishing in Australia. It provides an analysis of: the complicated jurisdictional arrangements that have evolved for the management of marine areas; the regulatory mechanisms used to manage fishing activities; the enduring impact of the common law; legal recognition of indigenous fishing rights; legislative fisheries management objectives; the increasing impact of environmental legislation on the conduct and management of fishing activities; case law including prosecutions for fisheries offences and challenges to fisheries management decisions; and the impact of international law on the development of measures to protect Australian fisheries from illegal foreign fishers.
