In the framework of Aqua 2018 in Montpellier, France, the VIVALDI consortium will organise an open workshop titled ‘Acting together to better prevent and mitigate farmed bivalve diseases’, with the support of Ifremer, Aqua 2018, CeMEB and Montpellier University.

Scientists from all over the world, industrial stakeholders, farmer representatives, and national and European competent authorities will share their expertise, experience and views on current threats to the European shellfish industry. VIVALDI partners will also present and discuss recent project findings, as well as expectations of the main stakeholders towards research.

Three sessions will be held on the following topics: Preventing the entry of diseases, establishing effective breeding programmes against mollusc diseases, and defining biosecurity measures.

This workshop is open to all participants attending the World Aquaculture Congress.
