Reducing the depuration time of bivalve molluscs: assessing risk based reductions in depuration times

Mandy Pyke

Bivalve molluscs harvested from ‘B’ classified areas which are to be delivered to market alive need to be ‘depurated’. This involves holding them in clean seawater in such a way that they purge themselves of low level bacterial contamination. In the United Kingdom this has traditionally been done for 42 hours. This period of time is not set by legislation or science and is applied to all species. The FSA have reviewed this situation and will now allow the length of the depuration process to be shortened, in circumstances where the Food Business Operator (FBO) can provide evidence to and gain the authorisation from the local enforcement officer that to do so would not result in an unsafe food being placed on the market. For some foods and FBOs the potential reduction in depuration time may not be suitable or desirable. Seafish have produced this paper introducing the subject of risk assessment in this context.
