AQUAVETPLAN is the Australian Aquatic Veterinary Emergency Plan. It is a series of manuals that outline Australia’s approach to national disease preparedness and propose the technical response and control strategies to be activated in a national aquatic animal disease emergency. The manuals also provide guidance based on sound analysis, linking policy, strategies, implementation, coordination and emergency management plans.
The benefit of these plans lies in the fact that they are prepared during ‘peace time’ so that the information is readily available in the event of an actual emergency.
AQUAVETPLAN manuals are developed by Australian aquatic animal health experts with extensive stakeholder consultation. Each manual undergoes a formal endorsement process through government and private sector committees.
AQUAVETPLAN manuals are working documents that are updated as required and take into account research, experience and field trials, and cover emerging disease threats.
