Starting date: 01/06/2021 End date: 30/09/2023
The general objective is to be able to define the agent or agents causing the “unexplained” mortality of bivalves in the Ebro delta.
The specific objectives are:
- Evaluation of the toxicity of the chemical compounds used in the cultivation of rice, towards the main species of bivalves cultivated in the Ebro delta (mussel and curly oyster).
- Assessment and diagnosis of bivalve mortality in the bays of the Ebro delta during the years 2021-2023. As much by chemical analytics as by molecular biology and microbiology.
- Evaluation of the pathogenicity of the bacterial isolates, fundamentally of the sort Vibrio and Arcobacter-like in the species of greater commercial importance as they are the mussel and the curly oyster. the mussel
- Descriptive study of the microbiome and pathobiome in the mussel and oyster populations of the Ebro Delta, based on the treatment schedule for rice cultivation.
