Aim of this project is to re-assess the scientific basis for current zoo-sanitary control requirements imposed upon transfer and trade in seed stocks for international aquaculture. A series of working meetings involving leading European experts will be conducted for critical scientific review of available documentation and current risk perceptions. Unresolved research needs will be identified. Expert opinions and scientific reports will be produced, giving comprehensive and up-to-date information for use in risk assessment and risk management procedures according to the SPS agreement governing world trade. The project will contribute towards a commonly accepted risk perception, to the revision of current European legislation in this specific field, and stimulate the settlement of current disputes between European and non-European aquaculture trading partners.
