ABSTRACT

This project 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.
