Safeguard Our Shellfish Webinar
February 22 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pmFree
The shellfish industry contributes $270 million annually to Washington’s economy! Unfortunately, there is a large threat looming over this industry. While most people think of plants and animals as invasive species, wildlife diseases can be invasive as well. Learn about the biosecurity risk shellfish diseases pose to these native animals. Disease symptoms and potential impacts will be highlighted. A discussion of permits for importing will follow, and simple actions the public can take will be presented. There will be a question-and-answer session at the end.
Both the Washington State Department of Agriculture and Oregon Department of Agriculture have approved one pesticide recertification credit for those who attend the entire Webinar.
