Could this be you?

ANZAAP has developed from the Australia & New Zealand Zebrafish Husbandy group.
Originally dealing solely with zebrafish research, the organisation has grown to include elements of the public aquaria groups as well as a strong focus on animal welfare and aquatic health. 
ANZAAP is responsible for organising the Aquatic Symposium which is an annual event that brings together a wide range of professionals including Facility managers, Veterinarians, Technicians, Animal Welfare Officers and Industry representatives.
