IRC membership details are updated each quarter.
The Aquaculture and Wild Catch IRC will have responsibility for national training package qualifications relevant to the seafood industry, which can be described as having four sectors: aquaculture (offshore and onshore), fishing (commercial), seafood processing, fishery compliance and seafood wholesaling.
These qualifications are included in the SFI11 Seafood Industry Training Package.
The IRC will consult widely during any future training package development process providing opportunity for any interested parties to make a contribution.
Technical Advisory Committees may also be established to inform future work, utilising a broad range of stakeholders with technical and specific industry knowledge.
The Aquaculture and Wild Catch IRC is supported by the Skills Service Organisation, Skills Impact. For more information visit Skills Impact.
Further information about the role of IRCs and how they operate can be found in the IRC Operating Framework.
