Need

I have been asked to Chair the Session and provide a presentation to the WCAF Conference during session 2-4: Biosecurity and Aquatic Animal Health, where I will talk about shared responsibility, cost sharing and collaborative responses with the Australian Aquatic Animal Health and Biosecurity Management Framework and take part in a panel session. My presentation will include an overview of the AAH and Biosecurity management system and the the development of the Aquatic Deed (and more importantly the biosecurity /Aquatic animal health policy components that come directly from it as front end components of the Deed) as a one of a kind innovation that puts Australia on the map with respect to Aquatic EAD response management as well as Aquatic EAD avoidance and minimisation.

In addition to a significant Biosecurity and Aquatic Animal Health component, WCAF also features sessions on Aquatic Animal Nutrition, Disease & Health Management, there are some topics of interest including Aquaculture Reproduction & Breeding Technology (Resilience to The Environmental Variability And Sustainability), Commercialisation & Economics, Investment, Insurance of Aquaculture, Sustainable Culture and Development of Aquaculture & Fisheries, Smart Fisheries, and Culture, Seafood, and Global Change: Anthropological Perspectives on Food Habits and Aquatic Food Resources in a Time of Increasing Demographic and Climate Change Impacts. This are very relevant with respect to Aquaculture development in Australia and it would be beneficial to hear these presentations.
