About us

What we do

Western Rock Lobster (WRL) is the peak industry body representing the interests of the western rock lobster fishery. Formed in 2001, WRL is made up of a Board of 8 Directors, elected by Managed Fishery Licence (MFL) holders.

WRL represents industry on a range of issues including changes to the management system of the western rock lobster fishery; preparing submissions to Government on behalf of the industry; sourcing funding for industry projects; and attending meetings and lobbying Government on behalf of MFL holders.

WRL also provides advice and information to a number of committees, steering groups and stakeholder organisations within the various sectors of the fishery; assists with safety, training and education programs for MFL holders; ensures Government processes are equitable, transparent and justifiable; and strives to ensure the catching sector of this valuable industry remains a viable, effective and responsible member of the fishing community.
