The aim of the project was to reduce the impact of harmful algal events on shellfish aquaculture in peripheral regions by producing models for toxic algal events in the hope that they can be predicted and so reduce the shellfish loss to local farmers. Additional outcomes were to train local agencies and industry in the use of the rapid analysis kits provided by BioSense Laboratories. This will hopefully lead to local analysis of the shellfish toxins, therefore significantly cutting costs and waiting times for local industry.
