What we do
Western Rock Lobster (WRL) is the peak industry body representing the interests of the western rock lobster fishery. Formed in 2001, WRL is made up of a Board of 8 Directors, elected by Managed Fishery Licence (MFL) holders.
WRL represents industry on a range of issues including changes to the management system of the western rock lobster fishery; preparing submissions to Government on behalf of the industry; sourcing funding for industry projects; and attending meetings and lobbying Government on behalf of MFL holders.
WRL also provides advice and information to a number of committees, steering groups and stakeholder organisations within the various sectors of the fishery; assists with safety, training and education programs for MFL holders; ensures Government processes are equitable, transparent and justifiable; and strives to ensure the catching sector of this valuable industry remains a viable, effective and responsible member of the fishing community.
