IT is important to know issues of biosecurity and what channels to follow when seeking assistance, says Biosecurity Authority of Fiji executive chairman Xavier Riyaz Khan.

His comment follows the successful community awareness recently held around the country.

Yesterday, the awareness in Labasa attracted a huge crowd throughout the day.

Students, the elderly and youths crowded the booth as the discussion took centre stage.

Some students asked BAF officers about the population of the reptile on Qamea Island on Taveuni while some Labasa residents queried about the termites in the area of Basoga and Bulileka.

Mr Khan said the awareness was done for the purpose of informing the public about BAF's role.

"It is also to inform the public what we are here for and how we can help if they have any queries of the biosecurity issues," he said.
