"the Straits are notoriously bad for severe heat stress and humidity conditions" (Ferguson et al 2008)
So, the Dept of Ag has obviously signed off on a heat stress risk assessment model to allow a live ex vessel to sail into the highest temperatures on record for the region through an area notorious for heat and humidity. Vulnerable people die in these conditions.....expect vulnerable animals packed like sardines to do likewise...and watch this space....What sort of country are we?
