The eastern population of stout whiting (Sillago robusta) extends from Bustard Head, southern Queensland to Coffs Harbour, New South Wales. The Queensland Finfish (Stout Whiting) Trawl Fishery (FTF) comprises demersal otter trawl fishers operating under a T4 fishery symbol, harvesting stout whiting and other byproduct species from a limited area off the south-east coast of Queensland from Sandy Cape south to Caloundra. Stout whiting also form part of the discards from the Queensland East Coast Otter Trawl Fishery (ECOTF) operating under a T1 fishery symbol and are part of the retained catch of the New South Wales Ocean Prawn Trawl Fishery (OPTF). The FTF differs from most other Queensland fisheries in that the fishery is managed based on a co-operative model with licence holder involvement in management initiatives. This co-operative model includes a range of legislative and voluntary management arrangements with greater licence holder involvement in the management and monitoring processes.
