Abstract

Manila clam Ruditapes philippinarum represents an important economic resource of Italian aquaculture. However, especially for Venice lagoon, health and environmental risks should be evaluated. A multidisciplinary approach was used. In particular, local production chain analysis and end-user requirements were investigated to assess manila clam safety and traceability in Northern Adriatic Sea. Moreover, the molecular and biochemical techniques demonstrated a good quality of the investigated farming sites, due to the absence of biotoxins. Molecular markers provided informations on the population genetics and specific genetic traits of Ruditapes philippinarum in Northern Adriatic Sea, which was investigated for the first time. The complexity of all these informations was simplified in a single useful tool: a database containing all the informations about the seafood product.
