I'm not sure how I stand on this issue but my first feeling is one of goverments say/promote one policy but act counter to that policy in reality.

I agree with you.

But I wholeheartedly support Australia's stand to protect our agricultural, aquacultural, ecological integrity.
This is NOT a trade issue.
Actually I think the countries trying to sully Australia's name with this via the trade issue actually WANT to destroy that integrity to bring us back to their playing field. They see our integrity as an unfair advantage. Keep unprocessed Northern Hemisphere Salmon out of Tasmania I say, heck keep 'em out of Australia if possible.

Suppose they'll be trying to keep our beef out of Japan and Europe next.
