Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry Minister John McVeigh has announced the appointment of Scott Spencer as new Managing Director of Fisheries Queensland.

“This year has started with some significant challenges for our fisheries from Tropical Cyclone Oswald and flooding, and many in the commercial sector are still cleaning up and counting costs,” Mr McVeigh said.

“Fisheries Queensland officers will work closely with industry to help achieve recovery,” he said.

Mr McVeigh said Mr Spencer, an experienced and well-regarded public sector manager, would bring a fresh approach to fisheries management in Queensland.

Mr Spencer recently chaired the East Coast Net Fishery BuyBack Working Group. He was Director-General of the former Department of Natural Resources and Water (2006-09), Chair of SunWater Limited (2009-12) and worked with fisheries in various roles including Secretary for the Queensland Fish Management Authority in the 1980s.

Mr McVeigh said Mr Spencer and Fisheries staff would work closely with both commercial and recreational groups to overhaul fisheries management in the State, undertaking a number of key projects, including management reviews for the crab, east coast trawl and freshwater fisheries.

“The Newman Government is delivering on our $9 million election commitment to buyback commercial net fishing licences,” Mr McVeigh said.

“The first round of offers closed in January, and Fisheries Queensland is now working with the Queensland Rural Adjustment Authority to progress advice, with meetings scheduled in the coming weeks,” he said.

“Monitoring our fisheries is a priority to ensure sustainability. In the coming weeks I expect to announce the details of an enhanced recreational fishing monitoring program.”

Mr McVeigh said in the past nine months he had travelled extensively meeting with many fishers and industry representatives.

“I’ve listened to industry and those requests will guide our priorities in the year ahead,” he said.
