And whilst Australia ponders its live export future, live export crews have revolted in Fremantle. Apparently, an AMSA surveyor inspected the Maysora in Fremantle on Tuesday and confirmed crew were not paid wages according to employment agreements.
"AMSA detained the vessel following that inspection," an AMSA spokesperson said.
"The vessel will not be allowed to leave port until AMSA is satisfied that wages have been paid and the operator demonstrates plans for ongoing payment of all wages."
Dr Lynn Simpson has written at length about the poor conditions for the crew. It is well known that when animal welfare is poor, human welfare is usually also poor!
