Production of antibodies against toxins involved in ciguatera fish poisoning

Sufficient pure ciguatoxin (0.5 mg of CTX-1) has been isolated from moray eel viscera to allow the immunisation of mice and screening of antibodies to ciguatoxin. It is determined that in vivo immunisation techniques were most likely to yield antibodies using related toxins as models of ciguatoxin....

Seafood CRC: Understanding and reducing the risk of paralytic shellfish toxins in Southern Rock Lobster

This report details the results of a multifaceted a research program led by the South Australian Research and Development Institute (SARDI). The work was undertaken to assist the rock lobster industry to understand food safety risks from a toxin naturally accumulated in the lobster hepatopancreas....

Seafood CRC: Review of the 2012 paralytic shellfish toxin non-compliance incident in Tasmania

During October 2012, a shipment of blue mussels (Mytilus galloprovincialis) derived from the east coast of Tasmania was tested by the Japanese import authorities (Ministry of Health Labour and Welfare; MHLW) and found to be contaminated with unacceptable levels (0.8mg/kg) of paralytic shellfish...

Improving risk management of paralytic shellfish toxins (PST) in the Blacklip Abalone (Haliotis rubra rubra)

The accumulation of paralytic shellfish toxins (PST) of microalgal origin in abalone tissues causes a trade and human health risk that requires active management. Toxic algal blooms of the genus Alexandrium have recently caused several abalone harvest closures on the east coast of Australia. Risk...

Improved understanding of Tasmanian harmful algal blooms and biotoxin events to support seafood risk management

The 2012 Tasmanian biotoxin event represents a paradigm shift for seafood risk management in Tasmania and Australia as a whole. The causative dinoflagellates are extremely difficult to identify by routine plankton monitoring, and are toxic at very low cell concentrations (50-100 cells/L). Sampling...

Factors affecting the toxicity of the dinoflagellate, Gambierdiscus toxicus, and the development of ciguatera outbreaks

This project confirmed that the benthic dinoflagellate Gambierdiscus toxicus is an origin of putative ciguatoxin precursors called gambiertoxins. It was recently found in French Polynesia that gambiertoxins could be extracted from biodetritus containing wild G. toxicus and that gambiertoxins were...
