Pass the Prawn…Australian whitespot – Minister asking scientists if they have got it right…

Agriculture department white spot prawn disease testing of imported prawns challenged by minister.

Interesting – get the scientists the expound so that government officials can later point to the scientific evidence….and thus pass on responsibility.

It is pretty clear that this virus is globally endemic – previous lockdowns have also failed in this regard. Shrimp farmers have had to adapt – rightly so and asking imported to do same makes sense….great advantage for local farmers to have…!
