We are glad to welcome colleagues from the regulatory agencies, universities, research labs and members from the Irish shellfish industry. We also expect to have several visitors from overseas to share their knowledge in the area of shellfish safety.

- This is an opportunity to present resent key research (viruses in shellfish, biotoxins, gene probes and the forecasting) and to encourage scientific collaboration with agencies/researchers.

- Promotion: Assist the Irish industry & State agencies (BIM) in the promotion of high Quality, safe Shellfish. Key questions for research and debate.

- Strengthen our focus on shellfish microbiology, including viruses, water quality and risk management. Provide a forum to look at the recent European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) baseline study of norovirus in oysters.
