You will require this accreditation if you are a traditional owner, representing an Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander group, intending to carry out traditional hunting, fishing or other activities within a Great Barrier Reef Marine Park area.
Traditional Use of Marine Resource Agreements (TUMRAs) must be developed by traditional owner groups to detail formal management arrangements for a range of issues, including hunting, and other issues of concern and interest.
Each TUMRA is a formal agreement that needs to be accredited before it can carry any authority.
Once accredited the TUMRA becomes the guide for how to manage and monitor the traditional use of marine resources activities such as:
- collecting (for example shellfish)
- looking after cultural and heritage sites.
Please consult the Contact Officer for more information.
