This is your chance to decide on the future of Australia’s marine environment


OceanWatch Australia has been protecting biodiversity and threatened species for the benefit of the Australian marine environment since 1989.

We work to encourage the adoption of best practices for fishing and aquaculture, the encouragement of stewardship actions amongst coastal and marine users, and undertaking works to protect, rehabilitate, restore and enhance the marine environment as our core focus, we now embark upon our new role as Australia’s Marine Natural Resource Management organisation, responsible for the delivery of the Commonwealth Government’s marine natural resource management related programs.

Key to future program delivery is the need to develop an overarching National Marine Natural Resource Management Plan.

Following consultations with key stakeholders, we now provide the draft release of the National Marine Natural Resource Management Plan 2017-2022 (Draft Plan) for your comment.
