Marine estate management strategy


The NSW Marine Estate Management Strategy 2018 - 2028 (PDF, 12612.84 KB) outlines how to protect and enhance our waterways, coastline and estuaries over the next ten years.

Actions in the Strategy have been determined by:

  • the range of values people have for the marine estate – social, cultural, environmental and economic
  • how to tackle the most significant threats to these values (identified in the statewide Threat and Risk Assessment)
  • widespread stakeholder and community feedback.

The Strategy guides how everyone can work together for a better marine estate now and into the future.

What's happening now?

The Marine Estate Management Authority is:

  • working with stakeholders and the NSW community to put the Strategy into action
  • monitoring how effective the Strategy is in delivering the outcomes
  • providing regular updates on the progress of actions.
