Dear Hugh,

I refer to our telephone conversation this morning when we discussed your FOI request. I confirm that AFMA is the regulator of commercial fishing within Commonwealth waters but we have no jurisdiction in relation to Salmon, which is a state government matter. In this context your request fro information should be directed to the Tasmanian State Government fisheries department.

AFMA also has no jurisdiction in relation to Commonwealth marine parks which come within the jurisdiction of the Commonwealth Department of the Environment and your enquiry should properly be directed to Environment.

In the circumstances I should be grateful if you would kindly let me have a short email confirming that you withdraw your current request.

Kind Regards
