Sanitation Control Procedures (SCP) for Fish and Fishery Products
Jan 24 @ 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.

This science communication workshop—created by graduate students, for graduate students—is a two-day event designed to increase communication skills for Louisiana graduate students in the natural, physical and behavioral sciences. It is open to all graduate students who are currently enrolled at Louisiana universities and colleges. For its inaugural year, the SciComm Summit will be held on the Baton Rouge campus of Louisiana State University on March 16-17, 2022.

The Louisiana SciComm Summit will consist of a series of panels, engaging speakers, concurrent breakout sessions and working groups. These activities aim to enhance the communication skills of graduate student researchers and foster a community of practice for science communication.

There are a limited number of spaces for the Summit, so student participation will be determined by application review.

This event is being provided at no cost to the graduate students through support from Louisiana Sea Grant and the Louisiana State University Center for Collaborative Knowledge. Learn more about these organizations on the Sponsors’ page.

LaDIA Fellows Program — Retreat #2 @ Southwestern Louisiana
May 23 – May 25 all-day

The LaDIA Fellowship is divided into two retreats, each lasting two and a half days. To show fellows the unique issues associated with Louisiana’s coast, retreats take place off campus in communities along the Chenier Plain and in the greater New Orleans area. At each retreat, fellows take part in intensive communication training, supplemented with field trips that illustrate how coastal issues affect communities. Attendance is mandatory at each session as the lessons build on each other.

2022 Fellowship Consists of Two Retreats:

  • January 6 – 8, 2022 — Southeastern Louisiana
  • May 23 – 25, 2022 — Southwestern Louisiana

LaDIA Fellows will explore the coast, in person and in detail. Skills are taught in the context of different coastal regions and their unique challenges.
