Health Minister Roger Cook said the trend was "deeply concerning", after four ships with coronavirus-positive crew members had arrived in Western Australian waters in the past three weeks.
The state government is afraid COVID-19 infections are slipping through the cracks, and is demanding the Commonwealth do more.
Mr Cook told the government to "get off your butt" and enforce stronger standards with overseas countries.
