Taxon Advisory Groups
The Fish and Aquatic Invertebrate Taxon Advisory Group is an approved EAZA EEP Programme since 1999. It is established within and managed by the European Union of Aquarium Curators to organise and develop programmes for the sustainable management of named taxa (species, species groups, or higher categories) of fishes, aquatic invertebrates and aquatic plants. Other separate programmes are organised to generally support key health aspects of the species programmes including health and welfare, live food culture, breeding records and a taxonomic database. This document lays out the mission, vision, values and objectives of the FAITAG and its component programmes, together with a synopsis of agreed protocols. It also sets out the processes of communication within EUAC and between EUAC and EAZA.
