Prawn farmers slugged $36m to clean up LNP/ALP free trade disaster

Queensland prawn farmers, stricken by white spot virus, deliberately introduced into the farmed prawn industry by Chinese importers will be slugged with a $36 million levy by the federal government to clean up the disaster of free trade.

Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Agriculture Barnaby Joyce has not ever once mentioned that the flawed LNP ideology of free trade which demands Asian produce be allowed into Australia, has caused the obliteration of the $358m prawn industry.

The sacrificial altar of free trade, a policy of the LNP and ALP, has killed off the Queensland farmed and wild prawn industry. Katter warns it will eventually decimate Far North Qld wild stocks

Today he said the industry would be charged with a levy to clean up the LNP mess.

Chinese prawn importer, Sino, has had its import licence revoked and will face serious criminal charges for breaching Australian quarantine laws.

Sino and four other companies allegedly were caught providing samples of non-infected green prawns for biosecurity testing by the Federal Agriculture department when their imported consignments were known to be infected.

Four more foreign importers are in the government sights allegedly for deliberately breaching biosecurity rules.

Today the Queensland Government has confirmed white spot virus has been found in wild prawns in Moreton Bay off Brisbane and now cannot be stopped.

KAP Member for Kennedy, Bob Katter said, “I congratulate the Government of the Australia with their free trade policies and no quarantine.

“Our prawn industry has been sacrificed on the altar of free trade.”
