Four Corners investigates some of the worst biosecurity breaches in Australian history, uncovering sophisticated smuggling operations, inadequate enforcement and corruption.

Last year a devastating exotic disease wiped out much of Queensland's prawn industry, threatening a lucrative trade based on our "clean" reputation and undermining faith in Australia's supposedly fortress-like borders.

Now a Four Corners investigation will reveal how Australia's biosecurity measures were defeated by sophisticated smugglers.
The program pieces together the dramatic fight to contain the outbreak and uncover the cause.

Insiders talk about the cut-throat nature of the industry and the huge profits to be made by those breaking the law. Investigators warn that Australia's biosecurity regime can be easily exploited.
Yet, the concern goes well beyond the seafood industry, with the program set to detail another significant breach that threatened a multi-billion-dollar industry.
