ESA: Iceland must improve control systems of bivalve molluscs




ESA finds that the official controls of farmed fish in Iceland is in place, but the authorities needs to improve control systems of bivalve molluscs.

This is the conclusion in a report published by ESA (the EFTA Surveillance Authority) after an audit in Iceland in March.

Official control systems of farmed fish regarding fish health and disease detection were found to be satisfactory. However, official controls regarding bivalve molluscs were insufficient and not in line with EEA legislation. In response to this, Iceland, at the request of ESA, has implemented a remedial action plan addressing ESA's findings regarding bivalve molluscs and to improve the control systems of aquaculture animals.
