12 Faculty of Food and Agriculture Newsletter Small Creature, Big Appetite, Large Destruction With the ability to consume up to 500 plant species, the Giant African Snail (GAS) can cause devastating effects to the already beleaguered agricultural industry and can even pose health risks to humans. First identified in Diego Martin in Trinidad in 2008, the snail can now be found in other places across the island. The United States Department of Agriculture, Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (USDA APHIS), in collaboration with the Ministry of Agriculture, Land and Fisheries (MALF) and the Faculty of Food and Agriculture, The University of the West Indies, hosted Dr Amy Roda, Entomologist from USDA APHIS Center for Plant Health Science and Technology (CPHST) from August 14th to 18th 2017, to develop a management programme for the GAS and consolidate all the 1 ongoing eradication efforts. The meeting brought together stakeholders from the MALF, the University of Trinidad and Tobago (UTT), the National Agricultural Marketing and Development Corporation (NAMDEVCO), the Caribbean Agricultural Research and Development Institute (CARDI), the Ministry of Health and various Regional Corporations throughout Trinidad. Presentations were made by Mrs Nazia Alishan, Agricultural Officer, and Ms Teresa Rosemond, Entomologist, from the MALF, who both gave a background and status of GAS and the way forward. Dr Marcus Ramdwar, from UTT, spoke on GAS interventions and Ms Shoba Marimuthu, from NAMDEVCO, presented an overview of the GAS operational control programme. Dr Amy Roda made a presentation on the experience of the eradication of GAS in Florida and possible management strategies for Trinidad and Tobago. Together with a team of Ministry and University officials, she visited infested areas in Orange Grove and Mt Lambert, where pilot trials were mounted using traditional methyldehyde treatments, a number of pyrazines and a papaya based attractant for the snail.2 Dr Roda reported some positive results from her initial studies here in Trinidad, despite the shortness of her visit. 3 From left: Ms Renita Sewsaran, Technical Assistant (USDA Trinidad & Tobago), Mr Wayne De Chi, Agricultural Scientist (USDA APHIS), Ms Teresa Rosemond, Entomologist, (MALF), Dr Wayne Ganpat, Dean (Faculty of Food and Agriculture, UWI), Ms Nazia Alishan, Agricultural Officer (MALF), Dr Marcus Ramdwar, Assistant Professor (UTT), Dr Amy Roda, Entomologist (USDA APHIS) Experts locate snails at a night-time field visit to Orange Grove
