The AAC is the statutory body responsible for advising the Minister for Fisheries on aquaculture policy, regulation and administration matters in South Australia.

Minister for Fisheries, Gail Gago, said the opportunity exists for anyone with relevant expertise in aquaculture to play an integral role in setting the future direction of the industry.

South Australia boasts some of the most diverse aquaculture in the country and the AAC plays a vital role in informing and advising government to ensure the ecologically sustainable development of this important sector, Ms Gago said.

We are seeking people who can provide high level, forward thinking to contribute to the management of aquaculture in this state.

Applicants from a variety of backgrounds are encouraged to apply, including those with appropriate practical knowledge and experience in the aquaculture industry, relevant research and development expertise or knowledge of environmental conservation and advocacy on environmental matters on behalf of community organisations.

Women are also strongly encouraged to nominate.

Nominations are being sought for a presiding member, five members and four deputy members, with tenures due to expire in October 2012.

For information about the role of the AAC or to obtain a nomination form, contact Kylie Leppa of PIRSA on 08 8226 8103 or email

Applications close Monday 2 July 2012.
