||Biosecurity import risk analysis of live sturgeon for aquaculture (the sturgeon BIRA) - Draft report
The Australian Government Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry has released the draft report for the Biosecurity import risk analysis of live sturgeon for aquaculture (the sturgeon BIRA) for comment.
The sturgeon BIRA assesses the biosecurity risks associated with the import of live sturgeon (Acipenser and Huso species) from all countries for aquaculture.
The draft BIRA report proposes that Acipenser and Huso species be permitted import into Australia, provided they comply with appropriate biosecurity. These measures include sourcing from disease-free stocks, pre-export and post-arrival quarantine, parasite treatment, egg disinfection and testing for disease agents
Trading partners are invited to provide comments on the draft BIRA report until 11 September 2023 (60-day comment period).
The department will carefully consider all comments while preparing the provisional BIRA report.
