Western Rock Lobster Market Report | July 2021

Category:

Please read on for updated information regarding catches in the western rock lobster fishery, rock lobster exports from Australia and New Zealand, and lobster imports for Hong Kong and Taiwan. 

Catch data for the western rock lobster fishery

The ‘Catch Balance Graph By Zone (Warehouse)’ report is prepared twice-monthly by DPIRD, most recently on 28 August. It provides information on entitlement landed within the West Coast Rock Lobster Managed Fishery (WCRLMF), on a monthly and zonal basis. Please note that the data presented do not necessarily represent all fishing activity for the period, due to delays in receiving and entering catch data from fishers and processors. Regarding the figures for the latest month, an eventual revision of 10–25 per cent would not be at all inconsistent with the historical pattern of revisions.

If you have any queries in relation to the report, please e-mail QMSAdmin@fish.wa.gov.au or contact the Rock Lobster Help Line 1300 574 071.
