Aquatic Animal Health
The AAHP leads and coordinates the national management of aquatic animal health for:
- finfish (including barramundi, pilchards, salmon and tuna)
- crustacea (including prawns, lobsters and yabbies)
- molluscs (including abalone, edible oysters and pearl oysters).
The AAHP supports the development of AQUAPLAN - Australia's National Strategic Plan for Aquatic Animal Health and coordinates the national response to aquatic animal disease emergencies, based on AQUAVETPLAN.
Australia's commitment to international agencies and agreements for aquatic animal health is also coordinated and managed by the AAHP.
