funded travel costs for two investigators to collect samples
in aquaculture facilities in Charleston, SC, in response
to an outbreak of shellfish disease. The investigators
collected hundreds of samples, some of which were sent
to a laboratory at the University of Arizona for analysis.
Analysis found that a white spot-type virus was present
in the aquaculture facilities from which samples were
collected. This project also funded three weeks
of training in shellfish disease and pathology for the
two investigators at the University of Arizona.
