Shellfish Regional Information Events 2018 - Molluscan Shellfish Safety Updates

March 13th - 14th

Time: 09:00 - 13:00

Location: Cork and Wexford

The Food Safety Authority of Ireland (FSAI), in conjunction with the Sea Fisheries Protection Authority (SFPA), the Marine Institute and Bord Iascaigh Mhara (BIM), is holding a series of FREE Shellfish Regional Information Events around the coast in 2017 and 2018. The informal events are an opportunity for all those involved in the shellfish industry to learn more about the role of the Irish Shellfish Monitoring Programme and how it assists industry to ensure that live bivalve molluscs placed on the market meet the highest standards of food safety.

The presentations will cover a range of topics of interest to shellfish operators such as biotoxin sampling and reporting, microbiological classification, new legislation, food safety management systems, food incidents, new risks and exports. Due to the local importance of king scallops these two events will take a specific look at this species.

Both events will start with registration and refreshments at 9am and conclude with a light lunch at 1pm. There is no charge to attend these events.

The events will be held at the locations listed below. Please click on the option that suits you and register your details.

Tuesday 13th March, Maritime Hotel, Bantry, Co. Cork

Wednesday 14th March, Stella Maris Centre, Kilmore Quay, Co. Wexford
