Our Projects: Sustainable Practices

 

Adoption of best management fishing practices within the Moreton Bay region

 

Project Managers / Authors:

Linda Cupitt, Sam Stone

 

Timeframe: December 2008 – December 2009

 

Project Objectives:

 

- Achieve auditable on-ground adoption of sustainable production practices within individual fishing businesses in Moreton Bay;


- Improve operator awareness of the benefits of achieving improved NRM outcomes - a more sustainable and resilient fishery, as well as a more profitable business;


- Encourage sharing of innovative ideas and techniques between fishermen across the region which address sustainability and profitability issues;


- Communicate outcomes with other community groups, so that (in the long-term) whole-of-community targets can be measured such as improvements in water quality, energy efficiency, bycatch reduction and minimization of impact of trawling on the sea bottom.


- To foster EMS development in other fisheries and regions, and other land-based primary industries across the State through sharing of information

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.
