Shellfish samples collected at 163 coastal sites and analysed in the laboratory for biotoxins. Biotoxins sampled for include AZAs and DSPs. Harmful Algal Blooms (HABs) programme has collected shellfish samples from aquaculture sites located along the coastline of Ireland between Strangford Lough and Lough Foyle. Samples have been collected under this programme since 2002. Shellfish biotoxins determine whether an aquaculture site is open for production and in some cases is closed pending or closed due to adverse toxins in the shellfish. Shellfish samples have been collected by samplers and delivered to the Marine Institute laboratory for biotoxins analysis using ISO testing standards. The HABs programme has been a joint initiative between the Marine Institute (MI) and the Food Safety Authority of Ireland (FSAI). Data complete for all samples surveyed since 2002.

Important Notes Regarding the Status of Production Areas Once a report is published it automatically appears on this website. The status assigned to each production area for the harvesting of shellfish follows the guidelines as contained in "The Irish Shellfish Monitoring Programme Code of Practice" issued by the Food Safety Authority of Ireland. The status assigned for each area is species specific. However it is important to note that the status assigned to each production area displayed on this website may not accurately reflect its current status at the time of viewing. This can occur in 2 ways: 1. The status assigned to each production area is based on the results of the last sample(s) submitted from that area (an area may have more than 1 production site and may harvest more than species). If an area does not submit a sample during the required testing frequency, the area is considered as Closed Pending. This may not be reflected on this website which displays status assigned only for the results of the last sample submitted. The required frequency testing of samples is dependent on time of year/species harvested (Typically a sample should be submitted if an area is actively harvesting once a week during High Risk Toxicity periods or depending on species harvested once a month during Low Risk Toxicity periods i.e. C.gigas & O.edulis). If an area is not actively harvesting there is no requirement to submit a sample. 2. A production area may have more than one site harvesting the same species. In this case the correct status for the area is for the site within that area that has the most recent sample date.
