However, with the increases in seafood trade, increased worldwide seafood consumption and international tourism, the target populations have become international.

The number of dinoflagellate cells per litre of water needed to contaminate shellfish is also variable. When favourable growth conditions return, the cysts may germinate and reinoculate the water with swimming cells that can subsequently bloom. An unusual feature of Gymnodinium breve is the formation by wave action of toxic aerosols which can lead to asthma-like symptoms in humans. Acid precipitation can further increase the mobility of humic substances and trace metals in soils Hallegraeff, The transportation of dinoflagellate resting cysts, especially from paralytic shellfish poisoning toxin producers McMinn et al.

It was then that azaspiracid formerly called Killary Toxin-3 or KT3 was identified and the new toxic syndrome was called azaspiracid poisoning AZP.

In addition, a slowly progressing paralysis was observed in the mouse assay using the mussel extracts. These cysts sink to the bottom of the sea and accumulate at the borderline of water and sediment where they over-winter.

Furthermore, there are micro-algal species about 75 which have the capacity to produce potent toxins called phycotoxins that can find their way through levels of the food chain e.

A few dozen countries have regulations for PSP toxins. It is even possible that algal species mainas are normally not toxic may be rendered toxic when exposed to atypical nutrient regimes e.

DSP toxins are produced usually by dinoflagellates that belong to the genera Dinophysis spp. Diarrhoeic Shellfish Poisoning DSP in humans is caused by the ingestion of contaminated bivalves such as mussels, scallops, oysters or clams.

The explosive growths sometimes appear during changes in weather conditions but important contributing causes may be variations in upwellings, temperature, transparency, turbulence or salinity of the water, the concentration of dissolved nutrients, wind or surface illumination Bower et al.

The symptoms included abdominal cramps, vomiting, disorientation and memory loss amnesia. In earlymore than human shellfish poisonings were reported from New Zealand caused by an organism similar to G. The second marinxs, neutral toxins, consists of polyether-lactones of the pectenotoxin group PTXs.

Non-motile algae cannot easily get to this layer whereas motile algae, such as the dinoflagellates, can thrive.

The most affected areas seem to be Europe and Japan. In this way the survival of biotoxxinas dinoflagellates from one season to the other season is assured Mons et al.

Mid-water exchange in regional seas may marinad the risk from polluted European harbour waters but may result in the transportation of potentially harmful phytoplankton species from the regional seas Macdonald and Davidson, There are no reasons to assume that shellfish intoxication can be predicted by the properties of the regional area.

The causative toxins, the ciguatoxins, accumulate through the food chain, from small herbivorous fish grazing on the coral reefs into organs of bigger carnivorous fish that feed on them Angibaud and Rambaud, ; Lehane, The conditions for an algal bloom are not yet fully elucidated but the phenomenon is probably influenced by climatic and hydrographic circumstances Van Egmond and Speijers, The first group, acidic toxins, includes okadaic acid OA and its derivatives named dynophysistoxins DTXs.

Changed patterns of land use, such as deforestation, can also cause shifts in phytoplankton species composition by increasing the concentrations of humic substances in land runoff. Some algal species already produce toxins at low abundances of some hundreds of cells per litre, while other algal species must occur in some millions of cells per litre in order to cause any harm.


In fatal cases, respiratory paralysis occurs within 2 to 12 hours of consumption of biotxoinas PSP contaminated food.

Incomplete elimination of harmful organisms is caused by the incomplete discharge of water and sediments in the ballast tank during reballasting Zhang and Dickman, On the other hand, some bitoxinas can bloom so densely, under exceptional conditions in sheltered bays, that they indiscriminately kill fish and invertebrates due to oxygen depletion.

These toxins are secondary metabolites with no explicit role in the internal economy of the organisms that produce them and with very specific activities in mammals. The PSP toxins are produced mainly by dinoflagellates belonging biotixinas the genus Alexandrium, which may occur both in the tropical and moderate climate zones.

The PSP toxins are a group of 21 closely related tetrahydropurines see Figure 2. The toxin was found widely from California to Washington, and was also found unexpectedly in crabs, the first time this toxin was demonstrated in a crustacean. Since these incidents, global awareness of DA and its producing sources has been raised Biotoxinaa and Quilliam, Most regulations are set for PSP toxins as a group.

Fast-growing algae quickly strip away nutrients in the upper layer, leaving nitrogen and phosphorus only below the interface of the layers, called the pycnocline.

Other algal species can be harmful to fish and invertebrates especially in intensive aquaculture systems by damaging or clogging their gills.
