Gulf Seafood Safety Webinar

Today I hosted a brown bag lunch webinar on frequently asked questions relating to the safety of seafood from the Gulf of Mexico. The webinar addresses examples of control measures used to monitor the safety of seafood products, details about Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons (PAHs),a contaminant of concern from the oil spill, factors that influence the degree of contamination in seafood products, and trusted seafood safety resources to learn more this issue. If you'd like to view the webinar, click here. It lasts approximately 25 minutes.
Depending on how strict your security settings are, you might get a pop-up blocker message when you access the site. You just have to to select "temporarily allow" for the software to download.

I also wanted to provide you with a list of resources relating to Seafood Safety and the Gulf Oil Spill that you might find helpful.
