Inland Fisheries Service provides training for Quarantine Tasmania
Inland Fisheries Service staff recently attended a training course for Quarantine officers at the DPIPWE Prospect offices. Due to the close working relationship between the IFS and Quarantine Tasmania, information towards the regulations based around the importation of freshwater fish, mollusc, and crustacean species were provided. The topics covered during the presentation to Quarantine staff included the legislation surrounding the importation of freshwater fish, the ornamental fish/aquarium industry, and the seafood industry. Quarantine Tasmania plays a crucial role in assisting with the regulations and responsibilities of the IFS, as Quarantine officers are the key compliance staff which are present at all entry points into the state.
