How the network functions

The network, coordinated from the Laboratory of Genetics and Pathology (LGP) at La Tremblade is made up of:

  • A vet who coordinates the network and whose responsibility it is to:
    • Harmonise the activities of the different actors in the network
    • Inform and train the actors of the network
    • Design the monitoring strategy of the network and update it according to the regulatory, scientific and socio-economic context
    • Disseminate and promote the results of the monitoring
  • Correspondents in the thirteen sites associated with the eight Ifremer LER laboratories ensure collection of information from the field and sampling of shellfish for analysis
  • A team managing a database that archives the results recorded by the network’s activities.
