National Fruit Fly Strategy 2020-2025 now available

The National Fruit Fly Strategy 2020-2025 (NFFS) has been developed by the National Fruit Fly Council to provide a framework for ongoing stakeholder cooperation to support a contemporary, viable, cost-effective and coordinated national approach to fruit fly management. The strategy applies to all endemic and non-endemic species of fruit fly.


The strategic objectives of the 2020–25 NFFS are to:

  • Maintain Australia’s freedom from exotic fruit fly;

  • Minimise the incidence and spread of fruit fly;

  • Implement national systems that support market access;

  • Facilitate a cooperative and committed national approach to fruit fly management.

Eight different, yet interdependent, priority areas are also identified in the strategy: market access, management of established fruit fly, prevention, preparedness and response, research, surveillance, diagnostics, communication and engagement, and cooperation.
