Science Advisory Group 

The Science Advisory Group (SAG) provides scientific advice on knowledge gaps and key risks.

The SAG comprises nominated representatives from all affected states and territories with collective expertise in aquatic ecology, fish virology/epidemiology, water management, social science and human health.

The group has been instrumental in developing the Strategic Research and Technology Plan. The research conducted under this STRP will help the NCCP better understand to make informed decisions on carp control.
