A 5-day, intensive Shellfish Diseases Workshop was held at NSW Fisheries' Brackish Water Fish Culture Research Station, Salamander Bay, from 6-10 December 1993.
The workshop was organized by Sub-Committee on Fish Health, a sub-committee of Animal Health Committee. It was attended by laboratory diagnosticians and researchers with major service and/or research commitments in the area of shellfish diseases. Prior to the workshop, most of these workers had little, if any, formal training in invertebrate pathology.
