Infectious Bursal Disease (IBD)

PNG poultry association opposes chicken imports from Fiji

This is over the same biosecurity concerns expressed by the Fijian Government, resulting in the ban of imports of PNG products into Fiji.

“We know that Fiji has a history of avian diseases outbreak in the past, namely Mycoplasma Synoviae, Mycoplasma Gallisepticum and Infectious Bursal Disease (IBD), based on OIE/World Animal Health Information System and it will be very high risk to PNG’s poultry industry,” said the Secretary for PNG Poultry Industry Association, Dr Keith Galgal.
