Our department intercepts a range of pests and diseases on vessels, imported cargo and goods from international travellers or mailed items because they pose a significant biosecurity threat to Australia.

We have developed a Significant biosecurity plant pest and disease interceptions report to highlight significant biosecurity plant pest and disease interceptions. This data is provided to assist with plant industries’ preparedness to respond to a detection of a plant pest.

This first report focusses on the 2020-21 financial year brown marmorated stink bug and National Priority Plant Pest data, and includes volume trends for cargo and national plant pest and disease response data.
