There has been recent interest by the aquaculture/baitfish industry and regulators to develop some type of certification/verification program to ensure that AIS-HACCP/Aquaculture Biosecurity procedures are actually in place and working. Such a certification/verification program does not exist in the North Central Region, thus pilot programs for Michigan and Minnesota will be explored and will be discussed at the workshop.
To continue these efforts Michigan Sea Grant, Michigan State University Extension, and the North Central Regional Aquaculture Center (NCRAC) will be offering an Aquatic Invasive Species-Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point (AIS-HACCP)/Aquaculture Biosecurity Workshop that will be held on October 21, 2014 in Clare, Michigan at the Doherty Hotel. The workshop will run from 9:00 am to 4:30 p.m. There is no registration fee for this workshop.
