Sanitation Control Procedures (SCP) for Fish and Fishery Products
Jul 29 @ 8:30 am – 4:45 pm

The Sanitation Control Procedures training is intended to assist the seafood industry in developing and implementing “Sanitation Control Procedures” as mandated by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). This regulation is commonly know as the “Seafood HACCP Regulation” which became effective December 18, 1997. Since this date, seafood processors have been required to ‘monitor’ sanitary control procedures used during processing in order to show their compliance with good sanitary conditions and practices.

The School of Nutrition and Food Sciences offers a one day Sanitation Control Procedures for Processing Fish and Fishery Products (SCP) training designed to educate seafood processors, packers, wholesales, importers, harvesters and warehouses about sanitation procedures. Participants who complete the course receive a certificate issued by AFDO, that fulfills the FDA requirements for seafood SCP training.

Using the underdogs of the animal world to gain insights into impacts, recovery, and restoration after oil spills @ U.S. Fish & Wildlife Services Refuge Complex
Aug 13 @ 9:00 am – 2:00 pm

Foraminifera? Periwinkles? Larval fish? Insects? Few people outside of the scientific community consider the impacts to these organisms when an oil spill occurs. Yet these organisms can be critical players in their ecosystems and could be used to guide restoration efforts. Each of our guest speakers give insights into the ecological role of these organisms, how oil impacts them and their environment, and how their recoveries can be used to inform restoration efforts.

This seminar is free and open to the public. Lunch will be provided to participants who register online by August 8. It will also be live-streamed for those who cannot attend in person.

Whether you plan to attend in person or remotely, please register in advance to save your spot for the seminar.

American Fisheries Society & The Wildlife Society 2019 Joint Conference @ Reno Sparks Convention Center
Sep 29 @ 8:00 am – Oct 3 @ 5:00 pm

As natural resources professionals, ensuring use of the best science available to manage trust resources is a critical goal. Creating effective partnerships, building collaboration and being aware of new approaches to resource challenges are equally important. One of the best ways to ensure that we remain knowledgeable and up-to-date on new science and cutting-edge approaches to management is through participation in the annual meetings of The American Fisheries Society and The Wildlife Society.
