Christmas Island fishing rules

New laws to support sustainable fisheries management in the Indian Ocean Territories (IOT) are now in effect, after extensive consultation with the Christmas Island (CI) community.

The updated fisheries ordinances for CI are fit-for-purpose and best meet the long-term needs of both the marine environment and CI residents. Included in the new ordinances are updated bag limits, as well as governance and compliance legislation.
