SFPA Authority/Management Board
At the helm of the SFPA is a five-person Management Board including members of a three-person Authority which performs functions assigned to it under the Sea-Fisheries and Maritime Jurisdiction Act 2006. 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.
