Asian Gypsy Moth Urgent
In the past several weeks US and Canadian authorities have intercepted a large number of commercial marine vessels with live Asian gypsy moth (AGM) egg masses on the superstructures of ships and cargo. The pace of these interceptions during the past few weeks is a cause of great concern to both US and Canadian inspection agencies.
The authorities have therefore issued an urgent warning to commercial vessels arriving at US and Canadian ports.
