    Introduction

    Below is the most recent advice from DOSEWPAC on how to complete the report that addresses the TERMS OF REFERENCE, the headings are underlined bold. The advice from the dept is underlined. Any information gathered addressing the terms of reference is plain text with bold heading below the relevant terms of reference with references for the section at the bottom

    Cheers

    Ok I'm in.

    What is the first step? Picking a family? Does an assessment need to be done on every single type or would say caridina cover all caridina types?

    I for one would like to see saluwesi shrimp. Cheap to buy OS and highly ornamental. So if we chose caridina that gives us a wide choice.

    Just a suggestion.

    So yeah where do we start.

        The assessment would be
        A family such as ATYIDAE
        A genus, such as Caridina
        or an individual such as Caridina spongicola ( reference http://www.guitarfish.org/2008/02/07...ulawesi-shrimp )

        It would also be best to be commercial in nature, in partnership with an importer and a breeder.

        Cheers

          I'm in, as far as my non-science background will take me. Surely I could be of some help

          I'd go to great lengths to get my hands on a new shrimp species in Australia.

            I'm in. I'm no biologist but have read enough on the wretched IRA on iridoviruses that reckon I could be of some help.

              Sounds good to me. I'll sticky the thread as I'm sure it will go through periods of little online action while data is collected, reports copiled etc.

              On the Importer/ Breeder front I'd assume they would need to either be or have access to a registered Quarantine facility. Do you have this Dave? If you're doing the work you should get some of the reward. (I'll just take a small cut!!LOL)

              CRS do nothing for me but if we could get the Sulawesi shrimp into the country legally then I'll become a convert!!

              Oh and I don't consider myself overly smart or knowledgeable but happy to help if I can!
              If it swims it's good, if it's Sahul it's better!

                Is there the huge cost that is involved when trying to get fish on the import list (thought it was something like $10 000? to submit a proposal)

                    Neither do we.

                    I will help in any way I can even if it is only making the odd smartarse comment here and there.
                    Whatever

                      Willing to help out a little too. Biological science background here.

                        I'd like to help, i'm not smart nor do I have a background in such things, but I have access to the electronic interweb (i hear they have it on computers now).
                        I'll try anything twice.

                          If you engage the services of an Environmental Scientist it could cost over $10,000. We wont do that. I worked for an Environmental Scientist once and the survey cost $20,000,000.00, the fish part of the survey is on line, the fish part was very small. http://www.nt.gov.au/nreta/environme.../appendixj.pdf
                          The risk assessments I have submitted in the past have no fees from the Commonwealth. Don't make any suggestions, they may see fit to add on another tax.

                            A plus for the saluwesi shrimp would be that they require specific conditions to breed in, and they might be less of a threat when considering natives. But i dont know how RSC/CRS would be allowed, and these guys not...

                              I don't think it would be wise to add cherries to our IRA. There's already established feral populations in Hawaii (if I remember location correctly).
