Indeed, I would be interested to know if Yrriganydji people are currently able to undertake traditional fishing practices under the current TUMRA or if they have other permits that allow this. Beyond fishing permits or approvals for individual use, are there any commercial fishing licenses held, or trial licenses provided under the Department of Fisheries, etc, that are apparently available for first nations communities. In other words, are community members living on country currently able to, or interested in, selling fish and other marine animals to broader markets.
EWB Australia acknowledges the traditional custodians of country throughout Australia and recognise their continuing connection to land, waters and community. We pay our respects to them, their cultures and their land; to Elders both past and present; and to emerging leaders. We recognise that the Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander people never ceded sovereignty of what we call Australia.
