List of prohibited items - interislands ferry?

I have read that the luggage is inspected when traveling on a ferry between the islands.

What items are prohibited from carrying?

tried to find the information on Ingala web site, but the link was broken.

thank you

Dear Boleslave,

nothing a regular tourist would normally have is prohibited. Eg. don't transport plants, fresh food etc... Every island is biologically distinct, and there is an effort to keep species in their right places. Though this effort would have had a better impact had it been effectively put in place 200 years ago, better late than never!

Warmest regards,

Heather Blenkiron
