10th International Conference on Molluscan Shellfish Safety
January 20, 2015
By John Nickum
The conference programme includes topics related to contaminants in shellfish, presentations on the latest advances on harmful algal bloom research, toxin methods, cyanotoxins, viruses and bacteriological contaminants, risk assessment and risk management strategies. For first time in the conference we will discuss the topic of heavy metals in shellfish from a regulatory and scientific view. We trust the programme will provide a stimulating platform for session discussions and for the development of new collaborations and ideas for future advancement of the field. The last day, simultaneous translation Spanish-English, will be held to facilitate the communication between producers- scientists and regulators.
