2018 Workshop

FMCS Workshop Freshwater Mollusk Health and Disease Assessment La Crosse, Wisconsin March 12-15, 2018
Health assessment and diseases of freshwater mollusks are important concerns for propagation, relocation, and conservation programs. The 2018 FMCS Workshop will provide background on disease organisms and their transmission. This Workshop also will include information on mussel health assessment tools, sampling procedures for health assessments, a case study of a mussel die-off, and a laboratory session covering necropsy, sample collection and examination, and histology. The Workshop will be accompanied by a poster session and mixers to encourage discussion among participants, and an optional field trip to the mussel propagation facility at Genoa National Fish Hatchery. More details about this Workshop and how to register will be posted on the FMCS website and in future issues of Ellipsaria.
