Aquatic animal diseases and aquatic pests can have severe impacts on aquaculture operations. Putting systems in place to protect your farm not only helps fulfil your general biosecurity duty but makes good business sense in reducing your biosecurity risks.
Preparing for an unknown emergency event is a complex task, and preparedness is key to recover from a biosecurity threat. DPI is developing a Resilient Aquaculture program to better understand what practical and appropriate tools, and assistance, are required to assist NSW aquaculture industries with biosecurity risk management. And how to prepare for, prevent and respond to a disease outbreak.
