Michigan Sea Grant and partners are offering an opportunity to learn more about AIS-specific HACCP planning.

Baitfish and aquaculture industries are diverse and complex, as are their risks of spreading aquatic invasive species. Most industry segments pose no or very low risk of spreading aquatic invasive species. However, to deal effectively and fairly with this potential vector (avenue of exposure), one approach is to apply the Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point (HACCP) concept similar to that used by the seafood industry to minimize seafood consumption health risks.

What: Michigan Sea Grant, Michigan State University Extension and the North Central Regional Aquaculture Center (NCRAC) will offer an Aquatic Invasive Species-Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point (AIS-HACCP)/Aquaculture Biosecurity Workshop.

When: 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Tuesday, October 21, 2014
Where: Clare, Michigan at the Doherty Hotel
Cost: Free
