The aim of the TSRA’s Fisheries Programme is to enhance the region’s wealth by creating and managing an economically and environmentally sustainable fishing industry and increasing employment opportunities for the Torres Strait Islander and Aboriginal people in the Torres Strait region which is equivalent to the wider Australian community. The Fisheries Programme outcomes are:

  • Improved wealth of Torres Strait Islander and Aboriginalpeople in the region
  • A sustainable fishing industry owned and operated by Torres Strait Islander and Aboriginal people
  • Sustainable management of natural resources
