Update: 12:48PM THE Biosecurity Authority of Fiji (BAF) has reiterated its warning about transporting American iguanas from areas of Taveuni to other parts of Fiji.

The warning follows the extension of the Declaration of Biosecurity Emergency Areas of American iguana for another six months.

BAF executive chairman Xavier Khan said the Biosecurity Emergency Declaration on American iguana has been put in place to control the spread of the pest.
