 In 2008, following a series of exchanges with Western Australia’s Department of Fisheries Animal Health Laboratory (FHL), the Biotechnical and Pearl Quality Laboratory (LBQP) of the French Research Institute for Exploration of the Sea (IFREMER), and the Pearl Oyster Department (PRL), Dr Brian Jones and his colleague, Dr Fran Stephens, visited the PRL-IFREMER-SPE (French Polynesia’s Fisheries Department) research station in Vairao, Tahiti. This visit allowed useful exchanges about diseases at pearl oyster farms but also about shrimp and fish diseases.
