629 - 3/09 – Asian Gypsy Moths - Worldwide

Date: 20/03/2009

The Association has noticed an increase in the number of cases concerning Asian Gypsy Moths (AGM) onboard Member vessels. This bulletin outlines the precautions to be taken by the ships crew and how to search the vessel correctly.

As its name suggests the moth originates from the Asian continent but has become more prominent in North America where it is considered a serious risk to forestry and woodland. The AGM is inadvertently transported around the world onboard ships both on the superstructure of the vessel and with its cargo.
