Queensland government will deliver on fishing and conservation plans before Christmas, Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk said.

She told journalists in Melbourne that the plans were a critical step to ensuring the state meets its promise to get 1.5 billion tonnes of seafood off the ocean in 2018.

"We've made the commitment to get 100 per cent of our seafood from ocean protected areas, that's what we've done, but we've made another commitment, so that's the final commitment," Ms Palaszczuk said.

"We want to do it this way so that we can keep that goal in perspective, we're still making our goal."

Ms Palaszczuk said the plan to protect fish stocks was a "time-consuming task", however she conceded that was only a first step.

Ms Palaszczuk would not confirm whether the plan to protect fi우리카지노sh stocks would include a national ban on small trawlers and trawlers from the mainland.

A spokesman for Mr Andrews said in a statement the plan would be a "full and comprehensive national commitment".

"This will include a minimum sustainable management sy바카라사이트stem, the re-establishment of the New Zealand Marine Reserve (NMRE), a comprehensive management framework for the coastal marine life of the coast and in turn will establish a national plan for conservation in the area with clear goals and a sustainable process for achieving them," he said.
