Biosecurity is a critical issue for the Australia seafood industry. Any major biosecurity breach has the potential to wipe out an entire sector of Australia’s seafood or agriculture industry. Australia’s seafood industry is valued at over $5.3 billion and employs more than 41,000 people. That’s a lot of reasons for SIA to take biosecurity very seriously.

SIA believes it is important for industry and government to work together to reduce the impacts of disease by responding to outbreaks early, effectively and appropriately.
