Need

There is a need to train industry in disease control strategies that will also contribute to the effectiveness of emergency control activities. The areas where this will have greatest impact are field activities and industry liaison. There is also a need to train existing government agencies skilled in areas of emergency response to effectively respond to aquatic animal diseases.

Field activities are determined by the cause of the emergency, species involved and the communities affected. Considering Tasmania’s population and accompanying financial constraints there is a need for emergency response personnel to be trained and available for action in both terrestrial and aquatic environments.

Objectives

1. Revision of the Tasmanian Fish Health Plan ensuring current relevance to Tasmania with special reference to stakeholder liaison.
2. Incorporation of the Tasmanian Fish Health Plan into the Tasmanian Animal Disease Emergency Management Plan and the Tasmanian Control Centre Manual.
3. Audit the resulting version of the Tasmanian Control Centre Manual according to National Performance Standards.
