Paralytic shellfish poisoning (PSP), due to saxitoxin and related compounds, typically results from the consumption of filter-feeding molluscan shellfish that concentrate toxins from marine dinoflagellates. In addition to these microalgal sources, saxitoxin and related compounds, referred to in this review as STXs, are also produced in freshwater cyanobacteria and have been associated with In this review we summarize the current state of knowledge regarding taxonomy, bloom dynamics, toxicity, autoecology, and trophic interactions, of saxitoxin producing dinoflagellates in this region. The dinoflagellates Gymnodinium catenatum, Pyrodinium bahamense and several species of Alexandrium are saxitoxin producers, and have been responsible of paralytic shellfish poisoning in different

  Anthropogenically-derived increases in atmospheric greenhouse gas concentrations have been implicated in recent climate change, and are projected to substantially impact the climate on a global scale in the future. For marine and freshwater systems, increasing concentrations of greenhouse gases are expected to increase surface temperatures, lower pH, and cause changes to vertical mixing Algal bloom locations are dictated by water currents and synaptic weather patterns, and their movement makes it difficult to pinpoint the origin of these blooms. Measuring the level of toxins in shellfish is currently the best way to chart the growing density of these blooms, and to prove the masses of algae are of growing ://

This study aims to evaluate the exposure of small pelagic fishes to paralytic shellfish toxins (PST) during blooms of G. catenatum. Sardines (Sardina pilchardus) were selected as a representative fish species.

In order to assess toxin availability to fish, both intracellular   Paralytic shellfish poisoning (PSP) from Protogonyaulax toxicity levels in shellfish collected from Tolo Harbour have, on average, tripled from to [35]. The intensification of aquaculture has also influenced the quality of the water leading to increase of toxic phytoplanktonic blooms and of the appearance of cases of PSP [].

Phytoplankton blooms are deleterious to biotic communities in susceptible coastal water bodies, causing shading impacts on seagrasses and other bottom habitats, depleted dissolved oxygen levels, fish and shellfish toxicity, fish suffocation, and water discoloration (de Jonge et al., ).

They also interfere with feeding and respiration of Seafarming to produce human food has recently intensified, particularly in the Asia-Pacific region.
