Our Projects: MBMP Rezoning Alternative

 

Participatory and coordinated fishing industry solution to the rezoning of the Moreton Bay Marine Park

 

Project Managers / Authors:

Kellie Williams; Darryl McPhee; Tor Hundloe; Colin Buxton; Ian Knuckey; Sam Stone

 

Timeframe: June 2007 – February 2009

 

Project Objectives:

 

- To collect representative data to characterise fishing activity and support industries operating within Moreton Bay (including social and economic values for commercial, recreational and indigenous/traditional fisheries).

 

- To collect data that adequately represents biodiversity abundance and spatial structure of habitats, ecosystems and associated species assemblages within Moreton Bay.

 

- To determine the impact of fishing and boating activity on the environment via a risk-based approach.

 

- To develop alternative options for the Marine Parks (Moreton Bay) Zoning Plan 1997 that meet the conservation requirements of the Queensland Marine Parks Act 2004 and the ecological sustainability objectives of the Queensland Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), whilst minimising impact on fishing and boating industries (including commercial, recreational and indigenous fisheries, boating and support industries).

Moreton Bay Fresh

Moreton Bay Fresh

The Moreton Bay Fresh logo represents a code of best practice essential to the sustainability of the Moreton Bay fishery. This code of practice is used in setting the standard amongst commercial fisherman and includes environmental concerns such as by-catch reduction and habitat preservation as well best food practices which includes a focus on Bay to Plate as well as improved storage and handling techniques of the fresh produce through the supply chain.

The objective of the Moreton Bay Fresh project is to encourage awareness from producer to consumer on the environmental, nutritional and sustainable benefits of the local seafood.

Previous research by staff of DAFF, CSIRO, MBSIA and DPI have confirmed the integrity of the code giving the Moreton Bay fresh logo a unique position in the market place.

 

MBSIA has successfully undertaken numerous projects which seek to enhance the environmental credentials and practices undertaken by the Moreton Bay fishery.
