Event description

Description

ANSTO departments Human Health and The Environment are pleased to organise a one-day Seafood Provenance workshop to be held on 16 February 2018 at ANSTO, Lucas Heights, NSW.

The Australian Nuclear Science and Technology Organisation (ANSTO) is an Australian Federal Government organisation and the home of Australia’s nuclear science expertise. ANSTO is leading a research project, in collaboration with UNSW and Macquarie University that focuses on the novel application of nuclear techniques in seafood provenance and quality authentication. The overarching aim is to develop a quick analytical tool for seafood provenance and authentication. In the 1st phase, we analysed two important high-value seafood products (prawn and barramundi) collected from 7 different bio-regions (4 in Australia and 3 from Asia). The outcomes of the research are encouraging. Analytical results suggest that nuclear-based techniques can effectively distinguish production methods (farm vs wild caught) and the geographic source of prawns and barramundi with a 94% accuracy.

You are invited to attend this workshop and participate in discussions on ways to develop the provenance tools further. Your contribution would help to make the second phase of the research more industry-relevant.

If you have any questions , please email Debashish (debashish.mazumder@ansto.gov.au) or Kelly (kelly.cubbin@ansto.gov.au).
