Olhao - Portugal
The bivalve production and catching in Portugal are particularly significant in estuarine and coastal waters. It attains yearly more than 10000 tonnes. Bivalves present both high gastronomic and nutritional value. However, during feeding they may retain chemical (mercury, lead and cadmium) and microbiological (bacteria, virus, parasites, toxic microalgae) contaminants, which represent a risk for the consumers. It is objective of this dissemination session to present the most recent results on the bacteriological and chemical contamination by toxic metals obtained by IPIMAR in the control of bivalve molluscs from the Algarve region. The following subjects were presented in this session : • Biology of bivalve molluscs • Microbiological contamination of bivalve molluscs • Results of the microbiological analysis of bivalve molluscs caught in Algarve during 2009 • Levels of mercury, cadmium and lead in bivalve molluscs caught in Algarve • Main legislation on bivalve molluscs
