Fisheries Research and Development Corporation, Media Release, 29 March 2021
An historic, Traditional Fishing Agreement has been signed between the Narungga Nation in South Australia and the South Australian Government.
The announcement was made last month and sets out a new pathway for the management of South Australia’s aquatic resources by combining Aboriginal knowledge with leading fisheries management. The agreement formalises the rights of Narungga people to enjoy, exercise and maintain Aboriginal fishing practices in a sustainable way.
For all of us in Australia’s fisheries and aquaculture sector the agreement is a sign of things to come and new ways of working together.
