The Queensland Department of Agriculture and Fisheries is implementing an expanded movement control zone that encompasses Moreton Bay due to positive detections of the virus that causes white spot disease in northern Moreton Bay. The recent detections were found near Redcliffe Peninsular and Deception Bay.
With the recent storms and flooding events, WSSV may have spread further than this.
