  • Description:
    "The Environmental Protection Agency's Gulf of Mexico Program was established to provide a mechanism for addressing complex environmental problems there that cross state, federal, and international jurisdictional lines. Many of these problems and issues are unique to the Gulf. This workshop addressed three problems concerning public health in the Gulf of Mexico: (1) exposure to human pathogens via consumption of raw molluscan shellfish; (2) marine biotoxins (such as ciguatoxic fish poisoning) and their effect on human health; and (3) human pathogens transmitted by direct contact via recreation or occupation. The problem of toxins in the food chain, and bioaccumulation​, were to be addressed at a separate conference"--National Sea Grant Library publication website.
