[Extract] The Moreton Bay Beche-de-mer (MB BDM) fishery is managed through permits as a developmental fishery. Conservative and precautionary management arrangements were developed for the fishery after a thorough assessment of the area and one permit was granted in 2003. The fishery operates within a highly visited Queensland Marine Park and stringent harvest controls have been applied to the permit to maintain access to the area. The fishery is restricted to the collection of two species of sea cucumber— Holothuria scabra (sandfish) and Stichopus horrens (peanutfish)—with the majority of product being exported to China and other Asian nations for consumption and for use in traditional Chinese medicines.
