Senate FADTR Committee Inquiry - Torres Strait.doc
In 2009, the Senate made a referral to the Senate Foreign Affairs, Defence and Trade Committee for an inquiry and report on the ‘administration and management of matters relating to Australia’s northern air, sea and land approaches in the region of the Torres Strait’ (the Inquiry).
Information for the Inquiry was sought primarily from those agencies which are part of the Queensland Torres Strait Treaty Inter-Departmental Committee (IDC). The types of issues relevant to the Terms of Reference of the Inquiry are regularly discussed by the IDC.
Through its Terms of Reference and related media, the Inquiry has recognised that the Torres Strait region represents a unique border situation. Effective policing and border control are central to border security in the Torres Strait.
The Queensland Government submission identifies opportunities to work with the Australian Government to address issues or concerns. In some cases, reference is made to the need for additional Australian Government resources, inclu

Queensland Fisheries Strategy 2009-14.doc
The Department of Employment, Economic Development and Innovation is responsible for the management of Queensland’s aquatic habitats and resources that support commercial fishing, aquaculture and recreational fishing.
Concern and growing awareness within stakeholder groups about environmental issues has dramatically increased scrutiny and pressure on fisheries management. While Queensland has an impressive track record of sustainably managing fisheries resources, the tools historically used are no longer considered as best practice to respond effectively to emerging fisheries management needs and industry development objectives.
In an effort to maintain and grow the economic value of fisheries in a sustainable manner while also ensuring fair and equitable access, the Queensland Fisheries Strategy 2009-14 has been developed.
The Strategy provides an overarching framework to support the future management of fisheries, aquaculture and fish habitat. It articulates a vision for the management of Queensland’

2008 Koala Coast Survey Report and response.doc
A survey conducted in late 2008 by the Department of Environment and Resource Management (DERM) of the koala population in the Koala Coast has revealed a 51% overall decline in the Koala Coast koala population since the last DERM koala survey in 2005-2006.
In contrast with the 2005-2006 survey results, koalas in bushland have faired worst with the populations declining 59% compared with a 30% reduction in urban areas. This confirms a dynamic process operating between the urban and bushland koala populations, demonstrating that the effects of urbanisation are impacting on the whole koala population.
The habitat mapping in SEQ has been completed. This map is intentionally blind to both current and intended future land use as recommended by the taskforce. The map is non-regulatory. Three categories of habitat have been identified:
bushland (irrespective of whether inside or outside of the urban footprint);
areas physically suitable for rehabilitation (irrespective of whether available for rehabilitation); a

Release of the Regulatory Impact Statement to amend the Recreation Areas Management Regulation 2007.doc
In July 2008 the Minister released the Strategic Directions for Cooloola Paper which outlined the Government's long-term vision to protect the Cooloola coast region’s unique ecosystem while maintaining public access to one of Queensland’s most popular recreation areas.
Among other things, the Strategic Directions Paper proposed an amendment to the Recreation Areas Management Regulation 2007 to create the Cooloola Recreation Area. The Regulatory Impact Statement explores the options available for managing the Cooloola area including requirements for and costs of Vehicle Access Permits. Revenue from the fees will be applied to managing visitor impacts, funding necessary visitor facilities, such as barbeques, showers, toilets and campgrounds and planning for foreseeable increases in visitor numbers.
Feedback from the public consultation of the Regulatory Impact Statement will be taken into consideration before a final management approach is decided.
Cooloola is being proposed as an extension to the exist
