Marine Dinoflagellate Assemblage in the Galápagos Marine Reserve
(Frontiers in Marine Science, 2019-05-07)
It is likely that harmful algal blooms have increased in frequency, intensity, and geographic distribution in the last decades in response to anthropogenic activities. The Galápagos Islands are renowned for their exceptional ...
An Attempt to Characterize the Ciguatoxin Profile in Seriola fasciata Causing Ciguatera Fish Poisoning in Macaronesia
Ciguatera Fish Poisoning is a worldwide concern caused by the consumption of fish contaminated with ciguatoxins not only in endemic regions in the Pacific Ocean or the Caribbean Sea but also in emerging areas of Macaronesia ...
Detection of Ostreopsis cf. ovata in environmental samples using an electrochemical DNA-based biosensor
(Science of the Total Environment, 2019-06-28)
Ostreopsis cf. ovata is a benthic microalga distributed in tropical and temperate regions worldwide which produces palytoxins (PlTXs). Herein, an electrochemical biosensor for the detection of this toxic microalga is ...
Predictive score and probability of CTX-like toxicity in fish samples from the official control of ciguatera in the Canary Islands
(Science of the Total Environment, 2019-03-30)
This research identifies factors associated with the contamination by ciguatoxins (CTXs) in a population of fish and proposes a predictive score of the presence of CTX-like toxicity in amberjack samples from the official ...
