The trucks are also refrigerated and triple-insulated to maintain the temperature of the fish. Once the tuna arrives at the relevant airport, it must be stored in a cold facility. The cold facility at Adelaide Airport has been identified as a potential weak link in the logistics supply chain for the export of tuna from South Australia to Japan. The costs associated with operating the facility, even for small quantities of tuna, are so high that it has proved uneconomical for many producers to transport their chilled tuna via Adelaide Airport.

AQIS bears responsibility for ensuring that the systems implemented in Australia result in the production of fish and fish products that are safe to eat and are as free as possible from hazards that are potentially harmful to humans. To this end, fish producers are required to develop, implement and maintain “approved arrangements”. Once implemented, AQIS must then decide whether or not to authorize an approved arrangement. Initially, a desk audit will be conducted to evaluate the control system that is proposed by the producer and will then be followed by a site audit.

Their success is evident from export statistics, which indicate a marked increase in exports of tuna to Japan over time. In particular, in the year 2000, tuna exports were worth $214 million, 18 per cent more than in the previous year and 196 per cent more than in 1997. Such export success on the part of South Australian tuna producers is attributable not just to the tuna producers themselves. It is also attributable to initiatives taken by suppliers in the logistics supply chain to improve customer satisfaction as well as by government bodies in Australia at the state and federal levels (and, of course, by the Japanese Government in terms of speedier, more efficient clearance of tuna imports through customs).
