Upon enrichment with lithium (385.6 pM Li), culture of Pseudo-nitzschiu niulfiseries HASLE produces substantially higher level of the neurotoxin domoic acid (DA) (230 fg cell-') than the control (135 fg 'cell-'). We hypothesize that in Cardigan Bay, where the first doinoic acid episode was reported, high levels of Li could have originated via a massive freshwater run-off involving an adjacent dump. Lithium enrichment may have played a part in enhancing DA production leading to the intoxication… CONTINUE READING
