The purpose of this study is to study the prevalence of aflatoxin B1 in commercial dried salted fish and other related information. A total of 150 samples were classified into 3 groups, based on the salt content. Low salt content (0-5%) were dried anchovies (Stolephorus sp.) and commerson’s anchovy (Stolephorus commersonii); moderate salt content (6-10%) were medan anchovy (Stolephorus bataviensis) and  whipfin silverbiddy (Gerres filamentosus) while high salt content (>10%) were moonlight…

Prevalence of Aflatoxigenic Aspergillus sp. in Dried Salted Fish from Traditional Market in Bandung City, Indonesia
Salted fish is an important source of protein and income in Bandung City, Indonesia. Meanwhile, salted fish products that are contaminated with aflatoxin-producing molds can pose a considerable
Risk Profile and Semi Quantitative Risk Probability of Aflatoxin B1 from Aspergillus flavus in a Dried Salted Fish in Several Regions of Java
The results of this study showed that the consumption of salted fish was about 3.7 g/capita/day, so there are risks of 7.74 cfu/g A. flavus exposure and 0.7291 ppb aflatoxin B1 exposure in 1 g of a saltedFish taken from sampling locations, however this value is still categorized as low risk level.
Antifungal Activity and Major Bioactive Compounds of Water Extract of Pangium edule Seed against Aspergillus flavus
The water extract of P. edule seed had promising antifungal activity against A. flavus which was due to presence of particular compounds belong to fatty acid and glycoside which were found as major active compounds in the fractionated water extract.
Screening of Mycotoxins Producer Fungal and Aflatoxins Level in Dried and Smoked Fish (Clarias Sp.) and (Oreochromis Sp.) from Lake Fitri - Chad
This paper aims to provide a history of the publication of this book and some of the key events leading up to and including its publication in June 2019.
Antifungal activity of chitosan oligomer prepared using chitosanase of Aeromonas media KLU 11.16
This study analyzed the bioactivity of chitosan oligomer prepared by using Aeromonas media KLU 11.16, as antifungal against Aspergilus flavus, A. niger, Eurotium amstelodami and Emericella nidulans and found that the best inhibition was showed by 200 ppm of oligomer against A. flavus.


Contamination of aflatoxins in different kinds of foods in China.
Corn is the food most seriously contaminated with AFs in China and AFB1 is the main aflatoxin which is found as a contaminant in foods.
Control of xerophilic mould in traditional Egyptian salted fish, "Molouha".
The results revealed that propionic acid treatment at 0.5% concentration reduced mould growth in the treated samples significantly and inhibited completely the pathogenic species from producing mycotoxins with better color, odor and appearance of thetreated samples.
Fungi associated with dried fish in Sri Lanka
The protective exoskeleton appeared to prevent fungal growth on dried shrimp, and species of Aspergillus niger, A. flavus, and Aureobasidium did not grow on dried-fish under laboratory conditions.
Enzyme - Linked Immunosorbent Assay (Elisa) of Aflatoxin B1 in Groundnut and Cereal Grains in Lagos, Nigeria
Enzyme linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) technique was used to assess the levels of aflatoxin B1 in groundnut and cereal grains commonly consumed by wide majority of Nigeria populace. Homogenous
Changes in fungi and mycotoxins in pearl millet under controlled storage conditions
Year of grain production significantly affected isolation frequency of fungi, and isolation frequencies from low-moisture grain were rarely affected by temperature, relative humidity, or atmosphere treatments, but was affected by storage duration for some fungi.
The contamination of foods and feed with mycotoxins is a commonly known problem. Intense investigations have been conducted by studying the existence of the various mycotoxins to find out how they

Biological control methods with special emphasis on in vivo and in vitro enzymatic detoxification of aflatoxin have been reviewed and future areas of research involving large-scale enzyme detoxification and modified atmosphere storage are discussed.
An improved medium for the detection of Aspergillus flavus and A. parasiticus.
Results were reproducible and comparable with those on standard fungal enumeration media incubated for much longer periods, and a very low percentage of false positive or negatives was found.
