Notifiable aquatic diseases


A number of aquatic diseases are notifiable under NSW legislation.

This means there is a duty, or legal obligation, to notify authorities if you know or suspect the occurrence of one of these diseases or if you have any suspicion or awareness of a biosecurity event.

By remaining vigilant and notifying as soon as you suspect a notifiable disease or event, you can play a vital role in protecting aquatic industries and preventing disease spread in the NSW aquatic environment.
