Foreign fishing crews were informed of the following rules: “Don’t bring meat to Taiwan,” “Don’t buy meat products online and have them dispatched to Taiwan,” and “Don’t visit animal farms in foreign countries.” Illegal importation of meat products can be fined up to NT$ 1 million. Immigrants also need to follow the laws and thus help maintaining the quality of Taiwan’s meat industry together.
