Aquarium Working Group Committee Vacancies

The aquarium working group (AqWG) has two vacancies available on the committee.

This is an unpaid post for which you must have institutional support and your collection must be a BIAZA member.  The post is within the Aquarium Working Group (AqWG), a taxon working group under The British & Irish Association of Zoos & Aquariums’ Living Collections Committee.  This group works to organise the annual National Aquarium Conference each November, and also continually updates a selection of members’ resources including husbandry care sheets and policy statements based around aquatic animal care and welfare.  The group supports a number of focus groups which operate to carry out research into specific topics e.g. nitrates, reef fish breeding, undulate ray breeding, and responds to relevant queries from the membership as required.

Applicants should aim to attend 2 meetings per year, as well as NAC, and will be asked to assist in production of WG documentation and resources.
