Draft Management Program for the Saltwater Crocodile in the Northern Territory 16 Figure 3: Regional catchments used for C. porosus egg allocation. The percentage of the egg harvest allocated to each region averaged from the collecting seasons of 2003/04, 2004/05, 2005/06 and 2006/07 is also shown. These proportions are not static and are expected to vary between years and over time. When demand for eggs is greater than the ceiling, the Northern Territory Government will apply a set of criteria/principles to enable an apportioning to applicants which remains within the harvest ceiling. The process will be conducted to ensure the allocation is equitable and transparent. The criteria will be developed in consultation with stakeholders and made available on the web at (http://www.nt.gov.au/nreta/wildlife/programs/crocsustain/pdf/criteria_crocegg_allocation.pdf). The harvest levels set out in Table 3 are both conservative and adaptive, and populations harvested at these levels are expected to fluctuate primarily in response to environmental conditions such as rainfall and the availability and quality of breeding habitat (Fukuda et al. 2007).
