SFPA Authority

At the helm of the SFPA is an Authority with two members, including the Chair. Authority members are appointed as full-time employees under fixed-term contracts.

Similar to some other state bodies, the SFPA does not have a non-executive board.

There is also a Sea-Fisheries Consultative Committee, which comprises representatives of the industry sector who are appointed by the Minister. The committee’s role is to provide advice to the SFPA and help promote sea-fisheries law and food safety law, as well as the standards, guidelines, practices and procedures required for compliance within the sea-fisheries and seafood sectors.
