I read all 12(?) submissions made by the "stakeholders", many of which were from Asian Exporters and Govt. Departments seeking clarification, some from Aussie groups & Govt Depts applauding their actions & a couple pointing out the flaws in their assertions.
Nonetheless, the only people considered to be "stakeholders" by these bumbling governmental self-appointed saviours would be those who derive their living from the industry. Letters of protest from hobbyists bleating & screaming that they're annoyed because they can't import their Bettas from Thailand anymore, or won't be able to fill their aquariums with disease ridden Gourami's when this comes in will have diddly squat impact - they're saving our nation's food resources, they don't give a rat's patootie about "pets".
