Welcome to the second edition of our AHA Aquatic Update.
Australian Biosecurity Symposium
AHA is excited to announce that we have partnered up with the Invasive Species Council (ISC) and the Centre for Invasive Species Solutions (CISS) to bring you the inaugural Australian Biosecurity Symposium to be held 12-13 June 2019 on the Gold Coast, QLD.
The Symposium theme is preventative biosecurity practices and will focus on research and innovation, outside-of-the-box thinking and the exchange of knowledge and ideas across the biosecurity collective – agriculture (animals and plants), pest animals, weeds, wildlife, aquatics and the environment.
Our Symposium provides the ideal platform for cross-sectoral discussion, where new concepts are introduced, ideas are shared and tested, advice is sought and given, and new partnerships built. Challenging papers that stimulate debate and energy are encouraged - we hope you will be a part of it!

We’ve been busy filming a series of introductory videos

We're looking forward to finalising these and being able to share them with you all - keep an eye out on social media pages over December!
A reminder that AHA is developing the Aquatic Services section of our website that will be full of resources and valuable information. Currently a number of fact sheets have been developed in conjunction with the Australian Government Department of Agriculture and Water Resources (DAWR) for your use relating to:
