Formatted abstract The Fisheries Branch of the Queensland Department of Primary Industries has recently expressed -the need for analysis of data recording information on the performance of regulatory enforcement activities and non-compliance with fishing regulations throughout Queensland's recreational and commercial fishing industries. In pursuing this task" this thesis generates and structures a large data set from which key summary statistics are calculated and presented to reveal the current extent" patterns" and trends of regulatory enforcement activities across Queensland fisheries and non-compliance with fishery laws put in place to protect and efficiently manage fisheries resources. A pooled cross-sectional time-series model is estimated using the data to test the deterrent effect of fishery regulation enforcement measures on the level of the fishing crime rate. The results offer considerable support to the economic theory of crime and specifically the "deterrence hypothesis".
