Left unmanaged, the volume of recreational and commercial fishing and today's better gear would lead to lower individual catches in the recreational fishing sector. It would also lead to over capitalisation and reduced financial returns in the commercial fishing industry.

The Department of Primary Industries, Water and Environment has developed management plans for both commercial and recreational fisheries. New minimum size limits and netting restrictions have been introduced, and bag limits for all species with the aim of establishing sustainable fishing in Tasmania.
