Abstract

Overly restrictive regulation drives illegal trade. Extreme risk aversion in import regulations may increase overall risk as no regulatory system is 100% effective. Optimal risk management requires flexibility and legal options for movement of animals and animal products to meet a wide variety of demands including those dictated by culture, religion and scientific pursuit.
