The Animal and Plant Health Agency (APHA), on behalf of Defra, carry out work in relation to the import/export of game birds; as well as carrying out statutory animal health inspections, as required, for game bird farms. However, APHA do not collect data on game bird mortality rates and are not aware of any other Defra agencies that hold this information.
