The purpose of this application tool is to provide information on the distribution and abundance of shellfish pathogens along the East and Gulf Coasts of the United States to inform decisions regarding the risks of spreading or exacerbating disease from shellfish transfers.
The interactive Mapper allows viewers to:
- Compare pathogen occurrences between two locations
- Look at pathogen histories in a particular area through time
- Locate shellfish hatcheries
- Examine pathogen range distributions
