Biosecurity Basics – Who to Call?

Gary Clark turned his pen from SWAMP to other vulnerable marine life by collaborating with Biosecurity Queensland and the Queensland Seafood Industry on a new video campaign.

An initiative of the Queensland Seafood Industry Association in conjunction with Biosecurity Queensland, this is to bring awareness of biosecurity threats. This was inspired by the farmed prawn white spot outbreak which cost the economy millions and has since been neutralised
The animation is intended to involve the community in monitoring the marine and land environment for changes so threats can be contained and eliminated.

In addition to workers and businesses, it is vital for everyone to remain vigilant for anything unusual in our waterway, oceans and on land. Should something fishy abound – take a photo, collect a sample and refrigerate it. Then, call the Biosecurity hotline on 132 523.

The initiative was launched by the Queensland Seafood Industry Association in conjunction with Biosecurity Queensland to bring awareness of biosecurity threats. This was inspired by the farmed prawn white spot outbreak which cost the economy millions and has since been neutralised.

Every person enjoying Queensland’s waterways, oceans and great outdoors can have a role to play protecting our wildlife and marine industry.

Please like and share this animation to raise awareness of this important issue.
