The amount of seized fruit, vegetables and meat at Adelaide Airport has increased in recent years, and Associate Professor in biosecurity at the University of Adelaide, Phill Cassey is concerned biosecurity breaches will have a negative effect on South Australia’s economy.

Phill Cassey’s interview was published in the Advertiser, Sunday Mail on 8 February, 2015.
