Hawkesbury shelf marine bioregion assessment - suggested management initiatives.

HAVE YOUR SAY on the: Hawkesbury shelf marine bioregion assessment - suggested management initiatives.

The Marine Estate Management Authority (MEMA) is assessing options to enhance marine biodiversity conservation in the Hawkesbury Shelf marine bioregion while achieving balanced community outcomes, including opportunities for a wide range of recreational and commercial uses. The bioregion extends from Newcastle to Wollongong along the coast.

MEMA has developed eight (8) suggested management initiatives to enhance marine biodiversity conservation and help reduce priority threats to the environmental assets and social and economic values and uses of the bioregion. These initiatives are detailed in a Discussion Paper which also outlines the process, the evidence that was considered, and the outcomes of the threat and risk assessment.

MEMA is seeking the views of the NSW community on the eight initiatives. Have your say using the online submission form at

Submissions close Sunday 24 April 2016.
