Australia further eases ban on Vietnamese shrimp imports

Raw shrimp were banned from the nation in January.

The Australian Department of Agriculture and Water Resources has further eased its ban on imported uncooked shrimp to allow imports of raw product caught in Australia and processed in Vietnam, reports VietnamNet.

On Jan. 7, the Australian Department of Agriculture and Natural Resources announced the suspension of shrimp and uncooked shelled shrimp imports from Asian nations, including Vietnam, in fear of white spot disease outbreaks in Australia. 

The ban took effect on Jan. 9 and lasts for six months.
