  • The cyanobacterium Planktothrix perornata grows in channel catfish (Ictalurus punctatus) production ponds in the southeastern United States and produces the musty-odor compound 2-methylisoborneol (MIB). MIB can rapidly accumulate in the flesh of the catfish, thereby rendering the fish unpalatable and unmarketable. A group of compounds that produce reactive oxygen intermediates (ROI) were evaluated using a rapid bioassay for their selective toxicities towards P. perornata. The most selectively… CONTINUE READING
