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 as well as two Independent Directors appointed by the Board.
WRL represents industry on a range of issues including changes to the management system of the western rock lobster fishery; prepares submissions to Government on behalf of the industry; sources funding for industry projects and attends meetings and lobbies Government on behalf of fishers.
WRL also provide advice and information to a number of committees, steering groups and stakeholder organisations within the various sectors of the fishery; assist with safety, training and education programs for fishers; ensure Government processes are equitable, transparent and justifiable; and strive to ensure the catching sector of this valuable industry remains a viable, effective and responsible member of the fishing community.
