ACWA is a not-for-profit organisation, dedicated to the promotion and the development of the aquaculture industry.  The implementation and management of the business plan are vested in the Committee of Management consisting of nine persons; an Independent Chair, Vice-Chairman and seven Committee Members.  All Committee Members are elected by ACWA members at its Annual General Meeting held on an annual basis.  The Independent Chair is appointed by the Committee of Management in accordance with the ACWA Constitution.

The day to day management of ACWA's business programs is supported by the employment of an Executive Officer who works out of the WA Fishing Industry Council Office in Fremantle 2 days per week.  See 'Contact us' for Executive Officer details.
