Declared fish habitat areas

A declared fish habitat area (FHA) is an area protected against physical disturbance from coastal development, while still allowing legal fishing.

Queensland's FHA network ensures fishing for the future by protecting all inshore and estuarine fish habitats (e.g. vegetation, sand bars and rocky headlands) contained within declared FHAs, which play the key role of sustaining local and regional fisheries.
