Title Type E Botulism Outbreaks: A Manual for Beach Managers and the Public.
Publication Date Jul 2012
Media Count 32p
Personal Author N/A
Abstract The Great Lakes basin has undergone a resurgence of Type E botulism (often referred to as avian botulism) in recent years, characterized by dead birds and fish along the shores of the Great Lakes. The number of deaths and areas affected appear to be increasing to levels that induce concern about the ecological health of the Great Lakes nearshore waters. The Type E Botulism Outbreaks: A Manual for Beach Managers and the Public (manual) has been prepared by the Great Lakes Regional Collaboration (GLRC): Great Lakes Type E botulism Coordination and Response Initiative, to generate awareness and provide information regarding Type E botulism and how to control its spread throughout the region. This manual is intended to provide both beach managers and the general public with guidance on Type E botulism and to provide sources of additional information.
