Victoria’s marine environment is highly valued and supports our way of life. Invasive marine pests can have a major impact on Victoria's marine environment and the industries and the people it supports.

In collaboration with other agencies Agriculture Victoria has developed a draft module focused on invasive marine pests management. This draft module is part of the Invasive Plant and Animal Policy Framework (IPAPF) and will help to shape the direction of invasive marine pest management in Victoria.

You are invited to have your say on the draft module and how invasive marine pests impact your life.

The consultation will take place from 11th November 2021 till 8th December 2021.

Have your say

Share your views, experiences and insights on how invasive marine pests impact your life, work, business and play and help shape the policy direction that supports effective invasive marine pest management in Victoria. The consultation below is in the form of a survey where you will be asked a series of questions relating to your lived experiences, views and ideas relating to the management of invasive marine species within Victoria. Once the consultation is closed, contributions will be reviewed, and the draft module will be updated.
