Shellfish diseases : current concerns of the Northeast : proceedings of a sea grant-sponsored workshop held at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, Woods Hole, Massachusetts 02543, February 26, 1987
This report is a summary of a workshop on shellfish disease issues of current concern to the shellfishing industry of the northeastern United States. The workshop, sponsored by the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution Sea Grant Program, was held on February 26, 1987, at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution. Its principal aim was to keep the shellfishing community abreast of the latest information on diseases of importance to wild and cultured shellfish stocks in the area. Topics addressed by invited speakers (scientists, managers, and growers) included 1) MSX oyster disease, which has recently caused a high incidence of oyster mortality at one location on Cape Cod, 2) tumors of soft-shell clams, 3) "brown tide," a new problem with recent dramatic effects on scallops in New York and mussels in Rhode Island, and 4) shellfish hatcheries and shellfish importation in relation to disease concerns. The workshop was attended by more than 100 people, primarily shellfishermen, shellfish officers, members of town shellfish commissions, and shellfish biologists from Massachusetts.
