Professional profile

Giuseppe Arcangeli is a senior veterinary expert with 20 years’ experience in the fields of seafood safety and fish, mollusc and crustacean pathology. Currently he is  Director of the national reference laboratory for Fish, mollusc and crustacean diseases and head of the laboratory for Safety of processed seafood at IZSVe.

He routinely performs diagnoses on the main fish, bivalve mollusc  and crustacean diseases and implements surveillance plans,  and quality risk assessments of products thereof. In coordination with the local veterinary services he supervises supply chain production: harvesting areas, farming areas, depuration centres, wholesale and retail trade and monitoring of health programmes for fish, bivalve molluscs and crustaceans.

He has been the principal investigator of a number research programmes approved by the Italian Ministry of Health: Enteric virus investigations in bivalves; New diagnostic methods in fish and mollusc pathology; Methods to inactivate parasites and enteric viruses in seafood products through high hydrostatic pressure and cooking.

Particular attention has been and still is dedicated to the development of molecular diagnostic methods to control fraud in the sale of seafood. This work led to the creation of a website: ITTIOBASE, where information can be found on the sequence of the characteristic genomic traits of various species of fish consumed in Italy.

He has been engaged in seafood safety activities organized by the Italian Ministry of Health and other public institutions in Slovenia, Bulgaria, Albania, Turkey, Russia and Libya.

He provides support to the Italian Ministry of Health, regional authorities and private farmers in the field of seafood safety, and control and monitoring of health programmes, with a particular focus on bivalve production. For this reason he is frequently involved as an expert and trainer  in activities conducted in this field by the European Commission (BTSF, TAIEX, FVO) and Italian Ministry of Health. In 2004-2011 he collaborated with the European Commission in the publication of the European Guideline for microbiological monitoring of shellfish harvesting areas. He is a lecturer at Italian universities for postgraduate courses on the hygiene of fish products.
