1.3.2.2 Gaps

There are species listed under NSW’s Threatened Species Conservation Act 1995 and NSW’s Fisheries Management Act 1994 that are not listed under the EPBC Act. For example, there are 102 threatened species and 8 threatened ecological communities identified as assets listed under NSW’s Threatened Species Conservation Act 1995 (Office of Environment and Heritage, Department of Premier and Cabinet, Dataset 18). However, there was no spatial information provided with these assets, and thus their water dependencies could not be determined. As a result these assets will not be considered in the current BA. While it is not possible to include new asset databases into this product, further assets may be added to the asset register at a later stage (Mount et al., 2015).
