The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) published a new regulation, "Requirements for the Import and Domestic Movement of Fresh Blueberries and Fruit of Other Hosts of Blueberry Maggot Moving From Regulated Areas in Canada and the United States to Non-regulated Areas in Canada" effective April 27, 1999.  All New Jersey growers shipping fresh blueberry fruit to markets in Canada must participate in program. The regulation defines a shipping protocol based on participation in an approved blueberry maggot control program, grower self-inspection of fruit from blueberry maggot, and auditing by the Department's Division of Plant Industry.
