An estimated 1.5 million tonnes of tuna, sea urchins, and salmon are caught off eastern Queensland every year.

The Queensland Government’s decision to close coastal fisheries in the west of the state and the decision to move fish out of the south-east of the state have led to a 40 per cent reduction in regional catch of large fish in the past decade.

Queensland Fisheries Minister Steven Miles announced the closure of two national marine reserves in the area around the northern town of Mount Isa and its sister, Cairns.

“I think we’ve done the right thing,” he said.

Tuna catches are down by more than 40 per cent since 2009 and around 40 per cent since 2000. The Cairns and Mount Isa reserves will close on Monday, July 8.

A spokesman for the Queensland Government said they expect they will continue to lose fish because of coastal developments.

The Queensland Department of Fisheries and Oceans confirmed they would not be able to relocate any Queensland fisheries without the approval of the federal government.

“These fisheries reserves are administered for the benefit of Queenslanders, by the Government of Queensland and have been established to provide protection to Queenslanders against the impacts of climate change and the impacts of fishing related to unsustainable fishing practices,” they said in an emailed statement.

The statement said this process of setting up an offshore processing centre “is a matter for the Department of Fisheries and Oceans and its management in relation to fisheries” would need to be agreed “by the National Government with the State Government”.

However a separate state government source said the Queensland Government still did not want to have to close its own fisheries reserves.

The sources asked not to be named due to the sensitivity of the matter.

“As Minister, I would rather be focused on supporting Queensland’s economy and working to protect ougta5카지노r national environment and people,” said Minister Miles.
