The level of consumers exposure to contaminants in the consumption of fish and shellfish products in the Adriatic Area of reference will be evaluated by CAPS2 thanks to a risk assessment study. This activity is linked with the implementation of National Surveillance Plans and with the web GIS application functioning, data retrieval and proper analysis in the partner Countries involved.
The Ministry of Agriculture of Croatia, with the scientific support of IZSAM, organised from 1 to 2 March 2016 in Split, Croatia, a specific plenary meeting on risk assessment.
Project partners were involved in this event to analyse the preliminary data available from WEB GIS to establish definitive joint criteria for risk assessment study.
To provide the data needed to perform an assessment of the health risks for the consumers of mussels from the study areas of the involved countries, a set of pilot studies have been planned in each country.
Pilot studies will be conducted in specific production areas for relevant contaminants in each country involved in CAPS2. Risk assessment data will be discussed during the final conference of the project.
The final study will be provided within the end of the project, assessing the level of consumers exposure to contaminants in the consumption of shellfish products in the whole Adriatic area of reference of the project.
