Tasmania's island advantage - clean and green produce and the unique biodiversity - depend on keeping introduced pests and diseases out of the State.
Through effective quarantine barrier services and a range of pest management, disease control and response programs, Tasmania's sustainable agricultural and fisheries industries are protected, along with the unique flora and fauna.
