Need

Expressions of interest were sought by DAWR.
The Department of Agriculture and Water Resources (the Department) is seeking expressions of interest for the development of a mobile application for the ‘Aquatic Animal Diseases Significant to Australia: Identification Field Guide’ (Department of Agriculture 2012).
The Aquatic animal diseases significant to Australia: Identification field guide (the Field Guide) is a key resource for raising awareness of important aquatic animal diseases and encouraging reporting of disease incidents to responsible authorities. The field guide provides guidance for commercial fishers, aquaculture workers, recreational fishers, biosecurity staff and scientists on how to recognise and report significant aquatic animal diseases.
The Department is seeking expressions for suitably qualified parties to make the field guide available as a mobile application (Android, Windows and iOS platforms). The application for mobile devices aims to increase accessibility of the field guide for field use and to incorporate user-friendly mechanisms for reporting of suspected aquatic animal disease events.
