Developing a value proposition and future track for the National Aquaculture Council (NAC)

The National Aquaculture Council (NAC) is the peak industry body of the Australian aquaculture industry, providing advocacy and a representative role at the national level, working to influence Government policies, regulations, and programs affecting the sustainability, prosperity, and growth of the industry. NAC has been representing the sector with severely limiting resources and at the end of last year, the Tasmanian Salmon Growers Association (TSGA), the largest aquaculture sector determined not to renew its membership on a wait and see basis. This investment assesses the need for the NAC and its value proposition in contributing to RD&E planning and prioritisation. Should it be determined that the NAC is needed and supported, a second phase of work (outside the scope of this application) would be identified to identify the structural, human, and financial resources needed to deliver the value for members. (The implementation of any operating models discerned, will be beyond the scope of FRDC-funded research).
