Toxins Made By Mother Nature - The Seafood Edition

This report gives an overview of natural toxins passed from animal (seafood) to human, divided into algal toxins and ciguatera fish poisoning. Some of these contaminants cannot be removed or inactivated by heat or cold treatment, and in some cases it is difficult to apply preventive measures.  The report describes paralytic shellfish poison (saxitoxins), neurotoxic shellfish poison (brevetoxin), amnesic shellfish poison (domoic acid), or diarrhetic shellfish poisoning (okadaic acid and related compounds), and ciguatera fish poisoning (ciguatoxin and other toxins) and scombroid poison (histamine).
