ABSTRACT

These proceedings contain the main papers and presentations from “Sharing the Fish ’06: Allocation issues in fisheries management” conference that was held in Fremantle, Western Australia, 27 February to 2 March 2006. They include the substantial work of the keynote and invited speakers covering the three themes of the conference which addressed the critical fisheries management topics of: (i) allocations across jurisdictions (including governmental, regional and multilateral, and national allocation issues); (ii) allocations within sectors (including extractive and non-extractive allocations issues; management issues; and, commercial, artisanal and tourism allocations issues); and (iii) allocations between sectors (including customary/indigenous, recreational, commercial, and artisanal/subsistence allocation issues). The enclosed CD-ROM contains the papers from the concurrent sessions which delved further into each of these allocation topics as shown in the Conference Programme section and mentioned in the Summary Reports and Overview section.
