The objectives of this project are:

  1. Undertake seasonal surveys of water, flocs, sediment and shellfish to identify viral & bacterial contamination in Welsh coastal waters, principally in the Conwy, Menai Strait and Burry Inlet.
  2. To study norovirus persistence in shellfish and sediment
  3. Develop a best practise management guideline to include mitigation strategies to reduce microbial pollution in estuarine & coastal environments
