fullsizeoutput_3e10January 2019                                                                          Congratulations to Jim Lawrence, wood sculptor and retired scientist. Technology he developed for testing shellfish for certain paralytic algal toxins became law in the European Union. Member countries must now use the method (affectionately known as the “Lawrence” method) for resolving trade disputes involving shellfish. It has a world-wide impact as well and applies to any trade disputes with other countries who export shellfish to the EU. The method is already the official testing method of the World Health Organization for these toxins in shellfish. Enjoy your oysters, mussels, clams, Coquille St. Jacques, etc. …!
