Below is the latest advice from the Prawn Liaison Officer at the Department of Agriculture and Water Resources:  

The attached notice advises that the Director of Biosecurity has agreed to exempt the following goods from the suspension:

  • dried prawns and shelf-stable prawn-based food products,
  • irradiated bait for aquatic use, pet fish food and aquaculture feed; and
  • uncooked prawns sourced from Australia’s exclusive economic zone (EEZ).

Kind regards,
