The Department of Ag has announced their interim decision on prohibition periods. The summary of their decision is:
a shorter prohibition period for voyages to Qatar now commencing 1 June instead of 22 May
a shorter prohibition period for Red Sea – now commencing 15 June instead of 1 June
no change to the prohibition period for Kuwait and Oman
an additional 10-day conditional period for Persian Gulf Destinations other than Kuwait commencing 22 May applying additional conditions to periods that were not previously prohibited
to do MORE RESEARCH
The winding back of prohibition to Qatar and Red Sea is not based on science and will result in more sheep suffering and dying as per industry's own research. As for more research.....they havent even looked at what has already been done because the industry wont release it.
