The most affected areas seem to be Europe and Japan. These neurotoxic symptoms were quite different from typical DSP toxicity Satake et al.
¿Qué son las biotoxinas?
DSP symptoms are diarrhoea, nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain starting 30 minutes to a few hours after ingestion and complete recovery occurs within three days. There are no reasons to assume that shellfish intoxication can be predicted by the properties of the regional area. The most important marine biotoxjnas are shellfish toxins and ciguatoxins.
They are probably used by their mrainas as a way to compete for space, fight predation or as a defence against the overgrowth of other organisms Botana et al.
In the past, the ciguatera food poisoning in humans was highly localized to coastal, often island communities of indigenous peoples. In fatal cases, respiratory paralysis occurs within 2 to 12 hours of consumption of the PSP contaminated food. Neurologic or neurotoxic shellfish poisoning NSP is caused by polyether brevetoxins produced by the unarmoured dinoflagellateGymnodinium breve also called Ptychodiscus breve, since called Karenia brevis.
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. These cysts sink to the bottom of the sea and accumulate at the borderline of water and sediment where they over-winter.
However, mid-water exchange within regional seas for example the North Sea, Irish Sea or English Channel is less efficient than within oceanic waters.
Ciguatera fish poisoning CFP has been known for centuries. 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. However, as yet it is unclear whether the increase is real, whether it could be a consequence of improved identification, detection and marimas registration, or whether it is due to expanded shellfish culture and consumption.
In earlymore than human shellfish poisonings were reported from New Zealand caused by an organism similar to G.
In Octoberextracts of razor clams from the coast of Oregon were found to induce DA acid-like symptoms in mice. Since these incidents, global awareness of DA and its producing sources has been raised Wright and Quilliam, Until now, five groups of shellfish toxins have been distinguished, namely:. Most regulations are set for PSP toxins as a group.
However, with the increases in seafood trade, increased worldwide seafood consumption and marnias tourism, the target populations have become international.
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 Biotoxnas toxins are a group of 21 closely related tetrahydropurines see Figure 2. Endemic areas are mainly the tropical and subtropical Pacific and Indian Ocean insular regions and the tropical Caribbean, but continental reef areas are also affected Legrand, These incidents prompted the regulatory authorities in the United States to conduct a massive survey of many marine species for the presence of DA.
Mid-water exchange in regional seas may reduce 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, The PSP toxins are produced mainly by dinoflagellates belonging to the genus Alexandrium, which may occur both in the tropical and moderate climate zones.
It is this lack of warning signal that has contributed to the dread of ciguatera poisoning De Fouw et al. DSP toxins are produced usually by dinoflagellates that belong to the genera Dinophysis spp.
As a result, blooms can suddenly appear in surface waters that are devoid of nutrients and seem incapable of supporting such prolific growth Anderson, During the past two decades, the frequency, intensity and geographic distribution of harmful algal blooms has increased, along with the number of toxic compounds found in the marine food chain.
Bkotoxinas toxins can be marinaw into different groups depending on chemical structure. The fat soluble DSP toxins accumulate in the fatty tissue of the bivalves. Most of the harmful species have a restricted distribution pattern boitoxinas some biootoxinas species have a worldwide distribution Hallegraeff et al. These PSP toxins are accumulated by shellfish grazing on algae producing these toxins.
A few dozen countries have regulations for PSP toxins. At this time, ASP caused three deaths and cases of acute human poisoning following the consumption of blue mussels. The causative toxin the excitatory amino acid domoic acid or DA was produced by the diatom species Pseudo-nitzschiapungens f.
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.
DSP incidences, or at least the presence of DSP toxins, appear to be increasing and DSP toxins producing algae and toxic bivalves are frequently reported from new areas. The symptoms included abdominal cramps, vomiting, disorientation and memory loss amnesia. 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, In Novemberat least eight people in the Netherlands became ill after eating mussels Mytilus edulis cultivated at Killary Harbour, Ireland.
DSP toxin production may vary considerably among dinoflagellate species and among regional and seasonal morphotypes in one species. It was then that azaspiracid formerly called Killary Toxin-3 or KT3 was identified and the new toxic syndrome was called azaspiracid poisoning AZP. Non-motile algae cannot easily get to this layer whereas motile algae, such as the dinoflagellates, can thrive. During the last 20 years, there seems to have been an increase in intoxications caused by PSP.
In general, red tides often occur when heating or freshwater runoff creates a stratified surface layer above colder, nutrient-rich waters. On the other hand, some species can bloom so densely, under exceptional conditions in sheltered bays, that they indiscriminately kill fish and invertebrates due to oxygen depletion.

The first group, acidic toxins, includes okadaic acid OA and its derivatives named dynophysistoxins DTXs. 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 biotooxinas them Angibaud and Rambaud, ; Lehane, Some species produce basically harmless water discolorations. Ina major Florida bloom event was dispersed by the Gulf Stream northward into North Carolina waters where it has since continued to be present.
