Northern Territory Seafood Council
The Council represents industry's interests in a diverse range of forums at the Northern Territory level. These include a number of regional Aboriginal fishery consultative committees, fishery management advisory committees, conferences and workshops on specific issues such as the environment and native title, formal parliamentary committees, individual government and non government bodies and the media.
In recent years a significant amount of time has also been devoted to representing the industry in land claims under the Aboriginal Land Rights Act and in native title proceedings in the Federal Court. Security of access to resources is a fundamental issue in the industry's wild catch sector.
The Seafood Council is a long term member of the Northern Territory Business Council, a forum which brings together 19 major industries in the Northern Territory.
At the national level the Northern Territory Seafood Council is involved in a wide range of issues, from maritime and industry training to such issues as biodiversity, marine protected areas, foreign incursions into fishing grounds and resource sharing.
