The association is here to help members with their individual endeavors, we work with government but will not volunteer any information about our members. We all work together towards the improvement of the industry as a whole within NSW and the wider Aquaculture community. We will work with members to overcome any problems together.
This industry is a small one, with everyone knowing large numbers of others in the industry, what one individual does can have huge ramifications for all of us, we all need to work together and with the regulatory bodies to ensure the industry prospers into the future and the NSW AA offers the platform for this to occur.
One of the greatest challenges that NSW offers is the tyranny of distance, NSW is a huge state with members spread across this vast area. Communication is a priority of the NSW AA and regular Newsletters and the internet is our method of disseminating information.
This is our main communication method and allows us to contact all our members at the push of a button. Newsletters keep all members informed of what’s happening in the papers, magazines and TV across the state, what’s happening to other members, what’s happening with government and generally just what’s happening. Newsletters only go to members so if you want to keep your finger on the pulse of the industry and see what’s happening around you then I encourage you to Join Now
Join today and enjoy the exclusive member benefits
Now has never been a better time for aquaculture growth in Australia and our growing membership is evidence of that. Connect and network with commercial farmers and be welcomed by a fantastic group of highly experienced people with the same interest in aquaculture farming as you.
These are the original objectives that the 150 founding members formulated to represent their ideas of what the association should be doing for them and as an association to represent them.
Though over the years the members have changed with some leaving the industry and others entering we as an association have adhered to our original charter and the objectives remain the same even after 30 years of supporting the Aquaculture industry.
- Assist and promote the interests of aquaculturalists throughout Australia and especially those in NSW.
- Facilitate the dissemination of information between aquaculturalists and to keep them abreast of the latest developments in research and production techniques, etc.
- Promote industry research and development priorities in areas critical to production, survival, purging and packaging, etc.
- Liaise with government authorities to ensure a representative of the NSW Aquaculture Association is a member of every board, committee and advisory council to represent Association members’ interests and seek government assistance where required.
- Represent the commercial interests of aquaculturalists and present a united front to voice concerns to government authorities where required.
- To represent the interests of member aquaculturalists first and foremost. We are not a government policy enforcement agent. We will not volunteer information on activities of any member to any government department.
- Promote the development of an environmentally responsible, sustainable and commercially viable aquaculture industry in NSW.
- Act on members behalf to intervene with government agencies to assist with their personal endeavors.
