    Workshop on Molluscan Shellfish Safety (2005 : Point Clear, Ala.)
  • Description:
    "This international workshop provided an opportunity to integrate scientific advancements presented at the International Conference on Molluscan Shellfish Safety with the Biennial Meeting of the Interstate Shellfish Sanitation Conference (ISSC). During this workshop, internationally renowned scientists reported on the most recent scientific and regulatory developments involving microbial pathogens. Most importantly, collaboration with ISSC will permit interaction between scientists, industry and government and familiarize the international community with the US programs. The workshop is organized into five sessions to address Epidemiology, Methods, Ecology and Distribution, Risk Management and Communications, and Research Needs and Future Directions. Within these sessions there is an emphasis on emerging issues, for example within Epidemiology there is a focus on emerging trends such as outbreaks associated with climate change or globalization. Within the Methods Session emerging methods are discussed, such as real time PCR particularly those that can be applied to risk assessments or address the transition from the research applications to regulatory analysis. The focus is on research that addresses major data gaps affecting our ability to conduct meaningful risk assessments for vibrios and viruses. Within Risk Management and Communication the effectiveness of various control measures in reducing pathogen levels including harvest controls, ballast water discharge controls, depuration, PHP, and education, is covered. The final session is titled Research Needs and Future Directions and the speakers address research needs based on risk management questions and discuss the effectiveness of current shellfish programs for controlling pathogens"--National Sea Grant Digital Library publication website.
