Concentration of V. parahaemolyticus cells in Tampa Bay Oysters

Vp in Tampa Bay Oysters at Harvest

Vibrio concentrations in Oysters harvested from waters of Tampa Bay are related to the temperature and salinity. This product uses the Tampa Bay Operational Forecast System to force a statistical model (USFDA 2005) to predict expected concentrations of Vp at the time of harvest. Daily average predictions are provided at for the previous 5 days, current day, and out to 48 hrs in the future. To see the model, click the icon to the right.
