Senator ABETZ (Minister for Fisheries, Forestry and Conservation) (5:35 PM) —We are conducting a broader review and we hope to have an answer in relation to those matters relatively soon.


Senator Murray —Could you answer me as well?


Senator ABETZ —As I understand it, maps are produced in relation to the Australian economic zone, the 200 nautical mile zone. I understand that most maps do not have the 12-mile territorial sea or the three nautical miles, which is the state jurisdiction. But, without making any promises, I will pass on that suggestion because, if we are in the business of creating maps, it should not be too difficult to seek to incorporate something in the next round.
